Residencies and Projects > Meta Open Arts

During the spring of 2019, I installed a large-scale paper sculpture at Facebook's New York campus through their Meta Open Arts program (formerly Facebook AIR).

Meta Open Arts supports the creation of new and experimental projects globally, aiming to build community through art. More info on Meta Open Arts 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.
