Demyelination by Mermaid Boyfriend

  • The Charlotte Street Arts Center 732 Charlotte Street Fredericton, NB, E3B 1M5 Canada (map)

Each knit stitch is like a grain of sand in an hourglass, a visual representation of the time it takes to loop the yarn around the needle and pull it through. This piece is a meditation on the demyelination of neurons that occurs over time in patients with Huntingdon's Disease. Using a variety of knitting techniques, and visible mending, this piece explores the connection between time, construction, and deconstruction.
