Embodied Silence


Size : 50 inches x 50 inches

Medium : White oak wood, magnets, 100% Marino wool, 100% Raw Silk


A space which embodies silence, an ecologies of knowledge allowing for gestation. One wears this acoustic architectural environment to disperse knowledge.

Embodied silence encompasses an ecology of knowledge, including thoughts, meanings, and ideas, for dispersal. Drawing inspiration from the ovary structure of certain flowers, which securely holds the hair-like pappus in place, facilitating seed dispersal and reproduction. The balloon flower, with its undisturbed central ovary, symbolize a space for birth. Surrounding layers, such as skin, air, nerves, and seeds, provide protection. Observations reveal the ovary's acoustical properties akin to wool.

The woolen and silk felt used in the fabrication of the wings are hand made by artisians and the artist herself with 100% Marino wool and Raw Silk.
