I have created a space with a circular waveform that includes sound to support the viewer in a space of contemplation. This circular waveform is made by embroidering space with a buttonhole stitch without a needle or substrate. Like a Mobius strip, it represents non-orientable circularity, devotion, repetition of mantra, and making. Sound mimics the vibratory nature of reality where one can find their original pulse and connection back to nature. I am currently creating an environment that reflects socio-political and socio-environmental concerns that are existential threats and by including sound to recognize our collective unity and allow for healing to occur within it.
