In Sock Drawer, an arrangement of furniture is aligned and suspended. Every facade is unique with tile patterns and printed designs, connecting ideas of innate value to economic opportunity. While the tiles consist of simple geometric shapes, their enveloped figures present a mosaic of overlapping textures, weights, and tones. Arranging these embellished materials allows for emphasis on the internal structure and considers the identity of the mundane within the domestic landscape. I made this work as a reflection on contemporary acts of preservation, an assessment of material and sentimental value, and a depiction of my journey through young adulthood. To evoke memories of encumbrance and fragility, I chose to focus on the nature of perseverance through a precarious structuring of space, offering the viewer a consideration of security and circumstance in everyday life.
