Collected tree limbs and second hand shoes
Nosotros is the word in Spanish for us or we. I like to break it down to nos + otros, something similar to our + others. [Nos]otros then stands for our others; it is the extended community that recognizes other living forms as part of our own kin[d]. Finding balance in and with our environment is a continuous negotiation, an everyday practice. Helping this group of limbs stand alludes to that practice.
This project has been exhibited in RISD’s graduation thesis show in Providence, RI and in Flux Factory, Long Island, NY. In 2016 it was recreated in collaboration with a group of participants at Bosse & Baum in Peckham, London.
