Surfacing the Future breathes new life into old objects by incorporating crochet into a substrate. The lace is further enhanced with gold leaf inspired by kintsugi (Japanese ceramic technique that highlights imperfections while honoring history). Futuristic spheres suggest a moonscape that is both familiar and unknown. Simultaneously, the work questions gender’s role in art and craft. Fragmented elements within the form are symbolic of a collective, one that embraces differences to act as a powerful whole.
