[Tens of thousands of feet of 28-gauge galvanized steel wire, crocheted in various tightnesses, resulting in a six foot by four foot textile sculpture. Can be hung flat, or folded, strung, wrapped or rolled to form to your preferences. Dimensions approx. 6ft x 5ft]

In rooting out the perforations and opportunities between materials of mass-production and handicraft, I have selected an industrial fiber, 28-gauge galvanized steel wire, and subjected it to laborious and productive manual processes. I have employed a repetitious, methodical system of fabrication on this durable and machine-produced cable. A textile emerged from this process of folding and entwining, folding and entwining, folding and entwining. The resulting handmade textile is indicative of its industrial roots, though suggests domestic rituals. And while it was laborious to produce, it is nonetheless a vulnerable material, subject to wear, or further alteration.
