As an interdisciplinary artist, uncertainty through familiarity is at the core of my inquiries. For twelve years, these questions have centered around looping techniques, and the sculptural and conceptual possibilities of crochet in relation to memory, perception and time. In crochet, the looping process functions as a double-check. With each loop dependent on the former, the surface becomes the structure – a matrix of physical pixels. The nature of the loop has also drawn my interests back toward ceramics, video and computer coding – where rotation, recursive statements and mirroring are standard looping methods.
Collaboration is also a looping process (being a form of call and response, a verification met with modification), and much of my current research is now devoted to the collective Encoded Objects.
