"A System of Interiority" is a part of the installation series (2010-2014) that explores an irreconcilable existence of yearning for something that has been lost. Fragility in my materiality, hand-shredded silk flowers, is held in formalistic language. And it is my continual obsession to believe that things can be held together, need to be held together with much care, labor, tenderness in the midst of a violent and arduous process of making and living."
