When I think about making art, especially for a show, my urge is to challenge myself and do something that makes me stretch my boundaries.  While I have a traditional art background, I’m also classically trained as a 3D animator but in a gallery setting, it is usually a challenge to showcase that.  I had this idea to make a tree made of ribbon and it would incorporate my family tree.  I actually could visualize it before I even started but had no idea whether it was physically possible for me to do it for the show.  It took some ingenuity but it happened.
The tree includes documents and photos of my family.  The ribbons are symbolic of the positives and negatives of family dynamics.
