My work documents the overlapping implications of place and home, my own body existing within them over time, and the way history of material culture is tied to history of place. I combine fiber arts processes, movement, and mapping to perform transformative processes involving the clothing my body exists within, the buildings where I live and work, and the prairie region. My artistic process is guided by repeating ritual maintenance to slow the inevitable decay of what I make and care for. Ultimately, though, loss is inevitable, and I create systems that encourage letting things go.
