What Binds Us - Patterning Resistance

What Binds Us, was a sculptural installation using woven fabric cast into concrete walls to investigate the textile pattern as a physical and phenomenological experience. This sculpture thinks through overshot, a weave structure that utilizes a system of supplementary ‘floats’ to create complex patterns. The pattern threads expends off the surface of the wall and are tied to a facing wall exerting an expression of balance and support.  Each thread in this 10ft work is tied together by local artist in a private performance. The act of tying together is a gesture of connection as we attempt to unpack ideas of resistance, tension and balance. This work portrays the built environment as in flux and call to action for change.
