Raise/Raze and Two Drained are part of a growing body of crochet installations, usually in collaboration with Hannah Sanders, that juxtaposes ecological miscarriages with our familial bliss. Often thought of as a “home craft”, crochet alligns with the domestic, while the repurposed fabric accentuates humanity’s connectivity, literally linking evidence of our lives with those of the “silent collaborators” who donated the material.
