Signature Care

While weaving with dental floss, I contemplate the relationships between production, consumption, vulnerability, and care. Dental floss, a material used for the care and maintenance of the mouth, is made from materials that devastatingly pollute oceans. As I am teaching my children to care for their gums and teeth, I am also contributing to a global crisis of ecological collapse. These works are a meditation on how an act of care in one direction can cause harm in another, and therefore become a metaphor for how harm and care are interwoven.
