outside of these walls

Outside of These Walls | 2013 | 48”x24”| Hand and machine embroidery, multiple surface printing techniques on canvas, cotton and silk organza

Working with the idea of containment, this piece incorporates machine embroidery, pigment, image transfer and hand embroidery. I was thinking about neighbourhoods, mapping, and the structures we use to contain ourselves as well as how containment alters those contained. Through a combination of idealized housing imagery (represented by the case study house program) with text from romance novels I was exploring inconsistencies in identity as influenced by environment.
