Residencies and Projects > Facebook AIR

During the spring of 2019, I installed a large-scale paper sculpture at Facebook's New York campus through their FB AIR program.

Facebook’s Artist-in-Residence Program supports the creation of new and experimental projects globally, aiming to build community through art. More info on FB AIR here.

Concept:
In a time of unprecedented technological innovation, our daily lives are increasingly intertwined and interdependent —broadening our concept of neighbor, and blurring geographical and cultural boundaries. In response to this reality, I have created a new landscape that investigates relationships between geographical places while also building a dialogue between color and material. In addition to exploring boundaries, the work pulls from the long-held quilting tradition of reusing discarded remnants to create something new. I am intrigued by the the idea that materials like paper paper maps inherently retain memory from its intended purpose as a navigation tool and also physically with each fold and mark.
