IN BETWEEN

inbetween14.jpg

This project is an investigation of my dislocation between two urban spaces; the uncomfortable pull between my current and former home.  Each wall of the passageway is embroidered with the road map of a specific urban space that I have called home. The careful and delicate medium of embroidery allows me to explore the landscape on a more intimate level, reflecting on my experiences in those spaces. The interior, filled with a chaotic web of connecting threads, reflects my physical and psychological back and forth between these two locations. As I struggle to find the connections between these two urban spaces, the entangling threads begin to pull at the two surfaces, forcing an unnatural topography onto the landscape, and forming a space where the two places live closer to each other than they ever could in reality.
