This body of work displays my initial transition from working primarily as a painter and a muralist into working more in 3-dimensional space. I began using textiles as my medium and ultimately, this lead me to begin exploring weaving as a concept and way of making. Weaving is an ancient technique that is an instance of humans mimicking nature and turning it into culture. In this installation, I created two scenarios that allude to the spider weaving its web, both in the spiralic fashion and the 3-dimensional tangled web approach. One process was formulaic, slow, and calculated, while the other was hasty, haphazard, and intuitive. In both processes, I was able to enter a meditative state, where I felt totally in a state of equilibrium with my body and mind. This body of work helped lay the foundation for my understanding of the process of weaving as both ritual, and meditation.
It also lead me to ask the question- what happened to weaving (ritual and meditation) in our society?
