Weaving, a symbol of knowledge and technology, is so prevalent throughout time that it simultaneously predates recorded history and propels us into our future – a future that is in danger due to environmental threats. The work in Interference : Interwoven reflects upon human attempts to control nature and contrasts these efforts against nature’s inherent unruliness and chaos. Through geometric and tumultuous woven structures, I examine the idea that humanity’s constant drive toward greater knowledge and better technology relies upon the flawed belief that we have the right to meddle in nature’s processes. The work in Interference : Interwoven examines the implications of our intrusive actions by exposing the tensions between humans and nature, order and chaos.
