As an artist I am concerned with the interplay between class, economics and environmental collapse. Specifically our relationship to freedom and our submissions to the controls over our time while the environmental casualties pile up around us.
Since the time of the Industrial Revolution our modes of labour and production have radically transformed the way we relate as humans, to each other and the land. In response to the capitalist model we are living in, I think it is of critical importance to observe the differences between competition and mutual aid as it relates to the organization of societies while considering ourselves in community with the natural world. Working primarily in fibre, new media, (natural and synthetic) and sound I am considering our place in history and our possible future trajectories.
pH: Measurement of Success is an interactive sound and light installation using conductive thread; the circuits are woven into the foundation of cloth. At the heart of the installation is a hand woven cloth, dyed using plants, which represents the coral reef. The sound composition is designed in many parts using sounds created from contact microphones on my weaving loom and is affected by the presence of humans within the space.
