Part performance, all process, and rather absurd, I love the physicality of the interaction between sewing machine, thread and paper. Paper, once flat, shiny and proper becomes tattered and soft, entirely transformed. Stitched lines mend inevitable tears, restoring a tenuous integrity. Systems of punctures become fault lines, threatening further disintegration. When dissolvable matrix replaces paper, all that remains is a delicate network of threads.
