This series began as a creative exercise, and became an exploration of my personal struggle with anxiety. I took large scraps of packing paper and began to tie it into knots. Soon I was experimenting with the effects of different textures, weights, and colors of paper. The sculptures are suspended in the air with simple nylon string.

As the tension and structure of these sculptures emerged, I found myself exploring the nature of anxiety and its effect on different parts of my life. Rather than using a more permanent archival paper, these pieces are constructed with inexpensive “scrap” paper, which speaks to the transient nature of the sources of anxiety. I avoided using any bonding or structural materials, relying solely on tying and shaping the paper itself.
