My practice engages the relationship between cloth, information, and production. I investigate the ephemerality of fabric and the compression of time and labor through the investigation of woven structures. By translating, reiterating, glitching, and archiving, I am interrogating the meaning of textile objects and their relationship to technology and various systems of image-making. I allow myself to follow my preservationist impulses, creating new forms using old materials and techniques. The loom becomes a tool for processing and translating information, creating imagery through intersections of pattern and color.
Using red, green, and blue threads, my woven pieces imitate the display system of both tube televisions and digitally glitched imagery, confusing dots, pixels, and intersections to create a new display system that subverts the divide between digital and analogue. In this process, I as the weaver become the manual operator of an information processor, manipulating patterns during drafting and at the loom. Colors and patterns create a field so vibrant that it overpowers us, and that we can only dwell upon for so long before falling back into the minute abstractions of pattern and structure.
