WEAVING THE THREADS: is an exploration of dreams, liminality, and intergenerational acts of care. Inspired by the cosmos and the story of the spider told by Wilfred Buck, the use of stitching, braiding and material collaboration fabricates a space of resistance. Creating from a place of love allows for moments of healing and growth. In these moments we are able to dream, and through this dreaming, we are reclaiming time, knowledge, understanding, and ways of connecting beyond capitalist ideologies. The act of care is enacted through the process of creating each individual artwork. At the same time, these pieces mirror back this sentiment to the viewer and artist.
