Unwind was a 3 week residency culminating in an exhibition of ideas in progress and an artist's talk. The residency was an opportunity to work with ideas of myth, the female body and hair as a signifier. I was very interested in the process of web making - both by spiders and the human activity of weaving. The project became one of creating webs and textiles, in the loosest sense of the word, which referenced the mythical Arachne, Athena, and Penelope and the more modern, Rapunzel.
