This project is created through the lens of my own female body as nature, and to reframe the outdated notion of sewing and mending as women’s work. There is a disproportionate impact of climate change on women while the efforts of women are at the forefront of creating real solutions to lessen the impact of these changes.
As the images float, the words become ephemeral like breath, as do memories of the land and sky. Word poems are created and recreated by the airflow and human presence in a shared connection to inspire a new language. Words disappear in the image, representing conversations unfinished in environmental discussions and with each other. The collage of images and words becomes an attempt at a new language where previous communication methods have failed. This series also represents our current systems of connection and disconnection with the earth and the resilience of nature to adapt to our interventions.
