Knit Veins: Fiber of Our Being

If our bodies are knitted together like cloth, either by some higher power or eons of evolution, then veins are like a kind of yarn, a fibrous network of connective channels that allows us to be. Veins are part and parcel of the fiber of our being. I wanted to call attention to the idea of some sort of meta-body: one that speaks to “the nature of matter, or body considered in general, [and] consists not in its being something which is hard or heavy or coloured…but simply in its being something which is extended in length, breadth and depth,” as Rene Descartes puts it [emphasis added]. The knit veins, installed in this way, speak to the idea of a body transcending the individual, extending beyond our own identities, corporealities, ourselves.

Duality #1: Masculine/Feminine

Duality #1: Masculine/Feminine can be seen as a visual model of how gender expression and identity function in relation to one another. Notions of an ideal male, wholly masculine, or of an ideal female, wholly feminine, are as unrealistic as the mannequins used for this piece. These ideals function as both poles and placeholders, useful and problematic. The knit patchwork unites these forms and places a more nuanced and holistic model of gender onto the rigid binary.
