As our devices become more immersive, we find ourselves in an echo-chamber. Our own biases are fed to us through algorithms of likes, memes, tweets, and news stories. Instead of human connection, we bathe ourselves in dopamine that never feels warm enough. Rather than the depths of our humanity, we give our attention to the litany of messages that never answer our inmost questions. This “curtain” of 32,000 pieces of yarn thrusts the viewer back into the physical world. The mirage of multi-tasking is shattered. The hand-dyed color gradation asks the viewer to let in the richness of human connection, to let stillness fall before us. The viewer's search for identifiable images or shapes is the interior search for presence.
