Radius of Action, was a term coined during World War II from the expression “The Point of No Return.” This term was employed to describe the maximum distance a military vehicle could travel in order to still have enough fuel in reserve to return to home base. Built into this concept is a systematic approach that accounts for available resources and factors in sustainable limits. The works in this exhibition are guided by a similar ethos, in many ways our industrial consumer society is at a critical point were there is no going back, we need to figure out a new plan to survive and sustain life. 

This exhibition features two different weaving installations, each dealing with our relationships to one another and the environments we inhabit. I am using music notations and captured weather data as variables to make systems coded for the loom. While making each piece, I introduce a multitude of human byproducts and actions to disrupt the natural progression of the process of weaving. The two installations are meant to create a sense of tension and contrast between one another, for instance one installation has a gestural or aggressive presence while the other has a contemplative or calming effect.
