thermochromic electronic textile with Arduino and power supply
20 x 36 in.

An artist and educator, I work with textiles, circuitry, and found objects. I am interested in how technology permeates daily life, streaming desires, discarding physical material, leaving trails of digital information, constantly generating anxieties and memories. I use cloth not only because of its warmth and relation to the body, but also to refer to the technological and political history of textile production and labor. My practice involves teaching workshops on soft circuitry and research on thermochromic (color changing heat sensitive) textiles.
