Big Geometries is a select group of works that investigate the logic of networks and systems -both figuratively and conceptually. The interlacement of filament, the interdependency of binaries, the quiet act of ritual, the process of laborious handwork, human touch, and social interaction; all mingle and play out in non-hierarchical conditions.

(Info: an HD video projection and installation mapping histories of crafting and ritualized activities such as sewing circles, quilting bees, labor camps, and spiritual practices that, throughout the universal history of human culture, have provided and reinforced personal meaning and community engagement. Collecting sound bites from local sacred practices, then processing this collection of sounds by sending them through a water holding module, the resulting vibrational patterning on the water’s surface create dynamic kaleidoscopic moving patterns further referencing the infinite nature of natural and biological forms, reminding us of our location within larger and infinite systems) in collaboration with Trinity Episcopal Choir, Portland, Oregon
