Upcycled fabric ropes - installation and sculpture

My work focuses on the interconnectedness of people in the space where we experience many conflicts and struggles. I hand-weave ropes with repurposed fabrics donated by friends from many places. With wires inside, those ropes are composed to be touchable sculptures and installations referencing metaphoric objects or forms.

The point of inspiration was my childhood memories of seeing Shimenawa (“enclosing ropes”) in Japan. The structure of ropes also fascinates me in their process, that braiding two opposing forces creates strength. Whether ancestors were calling or not, I later discovered my grandmother’s birth family was a twine manufacturer.
