As We Crouch • 2022 • RISD Digital Embroidery

as we crouch is a personal commentary on the passage of time, and the uniquely human compulsion to commit acts of preservation. We repeatedly return to the places we call home. We embellish our lives with reminders of the particulate matter that makes these homes. We organize our years around anniversaries of birth, communion, and death. Embroidering archival images from my family’s generational home in Maine is itself an act of preservation; the tools used to commit this act, machine-embroidery and machine sewing, both reflect a human need to expedite time, so as to preserve opportunities to take full advantage of it.

This work was constructed at RISD, and exhibited in the show Residual Hauntings, at the Gelman Gallery.
