It was an honor for me to participate in the Assets for Artists Residency at Mass MoCA. The studio space and residence were beyond inspiring and the fellow artists in residence were a joy to get to know. The residency gave me the opportunity to get to know the hardworking people of Mass MoCA and plan for some really great collaborations in the future.
For the residency I crocheted Neon Leon, a 4' standing sculpture with wearable mask. This figure is an example of the new direction I'm taking. I am moving toward installation art, and playing with the interactive opportunities of large, partially wearable art. Thanks Mass MoCA for giving me the intensive environment to push my work to the next level.
