projected single-channel video, sound

Animations of intricate knitted structures—as they built up and receded—were projected onto an abandoned building in New Orleans. Viewed as moving drawings, they articulated the system of knitting and what happens when it unravels; the handmade nature of knitting became a larger metaphor for building, breaking, and rebuilding. Found recordings of lapping water accompanied the projections referenced memories of Katrina. The video was 26:22, on a loop.
