Secret Dungeon, Brooklyn, NY
Finger crochet
15,150 feet of polyester & cotton clothesline
Dimensions variable

For the duration of five weeks, I occupied the Secret Dungeon Project space in Bushwick, Brooklyn, building the installation from the inside-out from clothesline sourced at the local 99-cent store. Working with clothesline had me thinking about both domestic labor and the textile industry. Eventually, when I ran out of materials at the 99-cent store, I started going to a warehouse in Maspeth, Queens, to buy the rope in bulk. Through this process, I learned about the supply chain of this seemingly benign material and built relationships with people along the way.
