How To Push Each Other

“How To Push Each Other” was created in September 2019, at Open Wabi Artist Residency in Ohio. I started this series with one piece of fabric that measured 24’x10’, and continually split it in half to see how far the material can be pushed and changed. During each iteration, I experimented with different ways to hang the fabric, creating hallways to walk through, or large pieces to lie under. I ended with 32 pieces, suspended and lit with a gradient. Each iteration asks the viewer to reassess how objects can take up space, and to affirm that soft and delicate materials, such as fabric, demand as much respect and admiration as more traditional building materials like metal, concrete, marble or wood.
