You are invited to view the façades of a house, like a curious mouse.
The first façade you encounter is covered by installation and sculptural work, and, for some reason, you know it is the most recent. It comments on the interaction between the internet and the domestic space: and the cursor (mouse) reminds you of ways of navigating the two spaces. Here, you explore a variety of processed materials such as steel, concrete, and MDF. These materials allow to build a conversation around control, human error, and perfection, but also the mouse as an extension of the body allowing the internet to fill the interior space.
My dear viewer, welcome to the outside of my house.
"There has always been a connection between coding and weaving, so I wanted to create a connection between hand stitching and the cursor; both the needle and the mouse become extensions of the hand."
