Tents
Tents

Tents is a site-specific instillation on Occidental College Campus headed by Jacqueline Surdell and myself. Propelled by previous work, The Fort, this project both expands and refines the concept and form. Tents focuses on aesthetics of the human form through the context of vernacular architecture and the bodily-scaled crafts of knitting and macramé. The three elements used for constructed, arundo grass harvested from the L.A. River, knit swaths, and dyed rope, loosely function as bones, skin, and viscera respectively. Tents aims to echo the human body in the form of nomadic homes. The form simulates osmosis on the larger scale of consciousness. In other words. The tents act as our bodies (vessels), the occupants symbolize consciences, fluidly moving though them, sharing them, demonstrating our interbeing.
