Penelope, chaste wife of Odysseus, wove her husband's supposed burial shroud by day, and unraveled it at night in secret. She used this as a means of stalling her suitors until Odysseus returned from his innumerable adventures.
Like Penelope weaving and picking apart the fabric, Unraveling depicts an exploration of themes of process, of making the apparent ambiguous and the invisible visible.
In Unraveling there is no distinction between the process of making and un-making. In this piece I've tried to make a space where meaning, decision, and definition are created at the same time as that very notion is being carefully undermined.
