“Oscillation” is a series of nonfunctional doorknobs that initially offer the viewer ideas of comfort, home and recollection. To me, they serve as a recording device and reminder of the privilege that exists when one is able to take for granted the feeling of touching the same object each day at the entrance of a safe space.
As I call upon personal memory and past experiences when making these pieces. They appear biological and offer a sense of the familiar along with the mysterious. Images representing my relationship with animals, and my experiences with and perception of insecurity and fragility are continuously revealed in my work.
