ENTANGLEMENTS are a series of soft sculptures materially embodying the ecological realities of the Anthropocene. Working with society's material excess to acknowledge the agency of material goods as well as to visualize the interconnectivity and therefore interdependency of global ecological, economic and social networks, I use reclaimed clothing, stuffed toys and at times household items to communicate how all things are part of the same material cycle, where humans become objects, objects become land, land becomes human and objects have agency over all they encounter. 

 

Utilizing methods of assemblage such as knitting, knotting, stitching and looping, each work is inherently interwoven with narratives of the worker, distributor, importer and user.  When possible, lighting is used to cast dramatic shadows to signify how our global, colonial, capitalist ideology affects social and physical geographies way beyond sites and moments of production.
