Through the action of wrapping chosen objects in thread, metaphor and symbolism are embedded into multi-dimensional sculptures. This act of binding is a preserving and protective mechanism, and a restraining and predatory force. The thread is also intended to convey the connectedness of all existence. Influence, is extracted from both the natural and man-made worlds. Tape measures are utilized to express the human impact, in regards to territory, power, and exploitation. The work investigates the consequences that arise when competing realms of existence clash, and examines the vast array of dualities, within this tug-of-war, such as: preservation and destruction, male and female, science and religion, strength and vulnerability, capture and freedom, and the internal and external self. In conjunction, it hopes to express the fragility of our human lifespan, and to transmit our need to foster diversity in the construct of our human community, our power sharing, and a mindful, cohabitation with nature.
