This series began as a collection study. Using common, household items that accumulate over time and become forgotten, I disassembled the spool of threads’ order by unraveling arbitrary lengths from each colour and reassembled them into random formations that then took on architectural and sculptural characteristics, yet continued its chaotic nature. Through the progression of photos, the string moves from introverted to deconstructed to deflated, while the elements remain the same. I am drawn to the colourful confusion, by its complexity created through simplicity and impermanence.
