After having children, what changed most was my awareness of the passing of time. In one way my own time was brutally "interrupted." In another, it was given incredible urgency – an explosive energy. This series of work is a first attempt to manifest one aspect of the abstract notion of time in a material object. They are small explosions that are meant to capture the middle of something. Not a beginning, and not an end, but an in between state. On a purely material level, I have introduced resin as a way of literally capturing my material on the verge of it falling apart. The nylon is caught in its frayed state without disintegrating into a pile of threads. It captures the act of making mid-process, as something explodes into being.
