I create slender, off-kilter sculptures by assembling fallen tree branches, discarded furniture, worn-out clothing, and other cast-off materials from my Chicago neighborhood. I physically suture the branches and prefabricated furniture by screwing, wrapping, or crocheting them together with cotton yarn or jute. The sculptures engage the surrounding architecture by hanging from ceilings, leaning against walls, and resting precariously on floors. By mixing humble, weathered materials with architectural space, my research and work explore daily rituals that require balance, such as standing, sitting, and walking. I also pay homage to the principle of reuse — of making do with what is available — that craft traditions have followed for centuries. My research and work focus on how small, discrete actions — additions, subtractions, divisions — accumulate over time.
