The textile world bonds me with my mother, my
home, and my roots. Yet my house is predominantly masculine, and this piece of
work talks about the universe that I have come to know through my father, my
brothers, and friends: the order of chaos.
I built a universe made up of printed wood, wires, cables, plastic, and minor
elements normally used for construction. Using techniques that my mother taught
me, like crochet and macrame, as well as others that I learned in college such
as plain weave, manual printing, and improvised knotting with the nature of the
materials, I built 19 switchable frames that make up an order-less, nonsensical
puzzle, and built them around a folding screen structure so it keeps referring
to the house.
This universe invites the observer to intervene, switching the squares and
letting the pieces take their own space so as to finally create their own
order, or their own chaos, just like it happens with the male domestic space of
my men in my home.
