Two to One combines many small parts to create a much larger whole. Much like the weaving of thousands of threads to make a cloth, or the agitation of many plant fibers to make a sheet of paper, my work is built through accumulation and repetition. My background in textiles directly influences my understanding of forms and building. In creating installations, I seek to make evident the delicate tension that exists between inside and outside, between natural and human-made, between inert and active. I find wonder in experimenting with these thresholds, testing the capacities of the physical world.
