Portfolio > In the Presence of Absence

In this work, I cut apart and unravel the clothing of my recently deceased partner and then knit it together again, altering and abstracting the clothing. The process of cutting apart and knitting together explores the hopelessness in touching all of my partner’s clothing, his second skin, and the desire to attempt to fix, to mend and to recreate.
