About the Work
Rotary Lattice is part of my Overlay series, completed in 2014. It has a physical projection of collaged pattern that lays over the surface of the object, sealed shut by a treatment of hand cut vintage wallpaper. Inspired by the details that often get painted over many times inside a home, forcing everyday functional objects into the background of a home.
My collaged constructions and architectural installations are guided by traces of past and person that lie deep within used objects and spaces. Though my work shifts in scale from the handheld to life size, my pursuit of a fragment of place remains. My background in Fiber influences how I arrive at my work and keeps me thinking about how to communicate with material. I use good craft to amplify the uncanny, allowing me to convincingly marry unlikely surfaces and materials.
My interest in architecture and the used object stems from studying the intimacies of the garment and the interior qualities experienced by the individual alone- pockets, interiors, folds. I consider my architectural constructions and object pattern-plays to be based on similar seams and junctures, offering perspectives that eclipse a view into a singular experience- the outcome understood and measured by the body as a view for one, one at a time.
