BODYWARP Ravel explores the lives of elegant bondage lived by military housewives at a former military base.

BODYWARP explores weaving as performance and calls for a unique receptivity to tensions in political and emotional spaces. The work investigates looms as frames through which I as the weaver become the warp and am held under tension, as I perform a series of site-specific interventions using my body. Like the accumulation of memory in cloth, in BODYWARP, looms and other tools of the weaver's craft become organs of memory, pulling my body into an intimate choreography involving maker, tool, and the narrative of a place.
