Just grab everything and hold onto it forever and never let it go even when it's the responsible thing to do

The sculpture Just grab everything and hold onto it forever and never let it go even when it's the responsible thing to do comes from a project that combines text and textile sculpture, through slow processes such as embroidery and hand made objects. Thematically, the work explores the object's consciousness, and its relationship to the world it exists in. The sculpture is given voice and a language through text, which the audience can experience and interpret through their own inner voices. Through this there may be a way into the object's mind, via the audience's inner emotional life. The project is rooted in object-oriented ontology, and is inspired by the psychoanalyst DW Winnicott's work on object attachment, known as 'transitional objects.'
