Interdisciplinary Textile Artist
Working with Ecology
I am intrigued by the eco-poetic sensory state of entanglement that fluctuates between plants, fragrance, light, human and more-than-human, microbial life – color processes, fibers, water and our collective memory, and extended mind and embodiment, and how we are all intertwined in the ecosphere. Interdisciplinary is essential for me, for the creation of imagination, wisdom and change, and so are experimentalism, poetry and phenomenology.
Sensory systems integrate experiences of our existential encounter with the world, bringing us the truth and the magic of the breath and the wilderness of our hearts.
The colors from plants have the ability to enhance our sensory perception, deepen our psyche of intricacy, substance, beauty and fragility. The changeabilities in the colours reminding us of nature’s time, schedules and the dynamics of life in nature.
In my artistic work, which is an in-depth research, I engage with a sensually interconnected eco-poetic methodology that analyses the intricate interplay between the human and the more-than-human world, particularly focusing on elements such as plants, colour, fibre, water, and microbial life, which is an approach that delves into the sensory aspects of this entanglement. The focal point of my artistic endeavours centers on the philosophical and aesthetic exploration of biology, and the intricate dynamics of our delicate ecosystem.
