My work attempts to unify and highlight the relationship between interior and exterior experience through processes that involve time and devotion. I employ folk art and craft process, typically hand and needle work such as embroidery, patchwork, and crochet, as well as voice, language, narrative, and gesture, to create scores–objects, environments, and opportunities–that activate restorative rhythms of attention, such as bereavement, trance, curiosity, conversation, and courage on the edge of the unknown. For instance, I believe something as mundane and functional as threading a needle, when engaged intentionally or witnessed within the context of aesthetic experience, can trigger a deeper, embodied understanding of our relationship to both the concept and activity of focus.
