The forms built with coils like vines cradle and encircle one another, they are supportive and emergent, relaxed yet taut- through these I explore the underlying dual nature of existence that of interconnections and individuality, dependence and self-reliance, fragility and strength. The horn of plenty- cornucopia-holds and releases in its perforated form what one can receive yet easily loose.
