This body of work looks at weaving the archive. Family albums and photography often depict something that isn’t the whole truth and often far removed from very important realities, and those realities become a dismembered version of a façade. Through making lattices with photographs I strive to embrace imperfection, to embrace my own imperfection. By using stitching in some of the images I mend the fractured but show the scars - unlike the family photos, which never show the wound or the scars. Latticing the images hold meaning in things that are part of each other but come from different threads.
The process of weaving with photographic paper is a grounding action yet the paper holds fragility in it that needs to be handled carefully.
