THE VORTEX :: 2016-2019
2880' ROPE, 10'X10'X10'   

For the past several years I wove a vortex on a loom installed in a 10 ft square space using 2,880 ft of rope in my studio.
 

Mathematically speaking, a torus is a three-dimensional ring or doughnut shaped-object around which energy can flow. As it spins, a vortex forms through its central axis. This pattern can be found throughout the universe in hurricanes, galaxies, and atoms. Nikola Tesla's experiments with energy employed the torus in the development of his famous coil. 

I studied weaving in Peru & India while living there and this work is influenced by my research. Concentrated periods of weaving allows for a change in my brain waves.
