2014/15 Artist in Residence, City of Winnipeg
Softs are inspired by Claes Oldenburg's soft sculptures of common objects, and the traditional Mola from the Kuna women. For these interpretations I have made fabric models of electronic devices and software screen windows. I chose to model the things that I use everyday to make my artwork, communicate with others, and for entertainment. The collection will continue to expand over time as I continue to upgrade my computer software and acquire electronic devices. This body of work acts as an alternate archive of electronic materials which normally are replaced or over-written at increasingly faster intervals.
