2020 - Current
An ongoing series exploring three-dimensional textiles that stimulate a natural habitat within interior environments.
Using color as a communicator, each piece becomes a sensory experience as relief waffle patterns rise and fall in a gradient fiber landscape; a window that provides a vista of meditation where humanity can dive deeper into the collectively undiscovered self.
All work is made using AVL Dobby Looms
Designing with the natural world
Synchronizing to the light throughout the day with color-changing textiles wallscapes.
Merging (project title) is an in-process body of work exploring 3D weaving, color gradients, interactive compounds, and technology with the purpose of uniting urban landscapes with the natural environment.
Taking the form of a woven wall-panel, Merging targets a wide array of audiences, through its multifunctional structure and proposed installation throughout personal and domestic spaces, business/office spaces, in the lobbies of public institutions, and in publicly accessible educational environments.
Merging actively changes color in direct response to light and temperature - achieved through the use of innovative photochromic dyes, thermochromic dyes, and custom circuit boards - to visualize a reciprocal relationship between the work and the surrounding natural environment. Color is utilized to convey a universal visual message about our engagement with the natural world that moves beyond borders and languages. In an effort to interrogate constructed notions of nature/culture separation so often implicit in our interior spaces. Ultimately, Merging serves as a step towards reimagining how we habituate ourselves within built and natural environments, in order to move towards more reciprocal, symbiotic, present ways of being in the world.
