Artist Statement

There are few activities that do not result in the creation of dust. Dust is everywhere and all things become dust. By spinning dust and knitting it into garments I am referring back to the body and fibers of which the dust is made. These creative processes are gradual and cumulative as are the processes of the shedding and accumulation of dust. By examining these tiny grains of matter through the camera, scanner and microscope I am exploring the fundamental particles of the universe. What is the smallest element of significance?
