With Every Fiber of My Being 2019
Public Art Installation
With Every Fiber of My Being, alludes to the materials and methods used to create this specific installation. It also speaks to my overall beliefs regarding the benefits of creating art. I create “with every fiber of my being” because I have to and because it brings me joy. Starting at the bundles of axons within my brain, to every hair fiber, and through the nerves of my muscles. Every network of fibers precisely distributed throughout my body, wants to see, smell, hear, taste, and create art. Textile or Fiber artworks are created with “plant, animal, or synthetic fibers to construct practical or decorative objects…and centered on an emotional message, time spent producing, and the materials used to create them.
