cotton string, raffia
A cotton sleeve was created on a flat bed knitting machine, which was then overstuffed with raffia. The intention of this piece is to serve as an allegory for the act of consumption, raising questions about the role of the consumer vs consumed.
Next steps involve exploring the nature of the sleeve itself and considering ways to enhance its meaning through further material expression.
