Abstract

This report concerns itself with a broad range of my work in embroidery and how this work reflects my experience as relates to the perception of the boundaries of body, self, and other. A strange tangle of perceptual disturbances feeds my work. These experiences, pathological or otherwise, drive me to make work that seeks to challenge human exceptionalism and, instead of valorizing the individual, attempts to confuse the boundaries between individuals. The modestly strange situations encountered in my samplers aid our entry to this ambiguous space where we overlap with others in new combinations.
