We move through our structured world without much thought to the relationships between the objects by which we pass – navigating empty space. These spaces affect us; our thoughts, our moods. I like to animate these invisible spaces – give them shape.

I take objects that are mundane/taken for granted and twist/pull the focus to illuminate something that is actively present but deemed unimportant. These weavings illustrate the invisible relationships between the contours of the constructed objects in our lived environment. In so doing they create new playful spaces or disturb useful spaces. Our eyes are constantly adapting and pulling focus as we manoeuvre through constructed environments as we make sense of an unending series of geometric and man-made installations. We discard most of our visual and audio data as unnecessary. My weavings have little structure and yet breathe the idea of relationships. At times the planes look dense and at other times ephemeral. These weavings poetically articulate what our brain considers to be trash. I am illustrating the process of seeing/not seeing – of choosing to bypass the poetry of our space. I want to highlight the intentional discarding of the obvious by constructing beautiful barriers.
