This installation uses an assortment of hand tufted/ beaded rugs and blankets, with several virtual reality checkpoints to paint a picture of the universe and quantum physics through the lens of magical thinking. Theoretical and magical thinking is the driving force behind many of the greatest discoveries and biggest disasters of history and holds an immense power over the future. I invite viewers to a conversation of all of time and space; to engage with their own magical thinking and perhaps where it stems from (and to) in their rational worlds. The goal of my work is to use the in-betweens of technique and materiality in such a way that it takes on didactic moments of wonder and inspiration.
