Bound (i.2.), 2018

Bound is a growing sculpture that traces multiple forms of entanglement in the face of anthropogenic climate change. Each time I exhibit Bound the individual tubes can be reconfigured to evoke varying aspects of our relationship to climate. (i.2.)references the swirl of a storm across a weather map and is comprised of 32 of what will be over 300 sets of data for annual average temperature for over 300 places around the globe, comprised of 1500 feet of petrochemical-derived medical tubing wrapped with organic thread dyed with plant and insect-derived dyes and mineral mordants.Installation size variable, current view 42” x 48” x 3/4”. Each length of tubing is 5’ long and ranges in diameter from 5/16” to 3/4”)

Special thanks to Tulsa Artist Fellowship and the Kaiser Family Foundation for supporting this project.

Bound is featured in The Body Issue of the literary magazine Ecotone. Additional photos and an essay about the project are accessible online through Ecotone’s website. Special thanks to editor Anna Lena Phillips Bell for inviting me to contribute. I am honored to have work included amidst so much beautiful writing.
