Sculptures, Installations, and Bow & Arrow Sewing Performances  

My staged performances use a compound bow to shoot a yarn-tethered arrow back and forth through stretched canvases, as if it were a needle and thread, to magnify the process of sewing to a scale at which it becomes dangerous. This method of sewing tears apart gallery walls and disintegrates the fabric, breaking the mending and healing metaphor of sewing, using violence to create an elegant tension between life and death.
