TM (Transcendental Meditation)

“This work alludes to the inherently transcendental, meditative nature of craft such as macramé, crochet, string art and other processes that involve repetitive actions.  These sorts of activities result in a similarly engrossing (and possibly longer lasting) type of hypnotic state/anesthesia often associated with television. TM, with it’s white on white string pattern resembling a spyrograph or astrological chart, evoking both baroque pattern and empty space, reminds us of the proactive nature of craft as a vehicle for many things- escape, enjoyment, adornment, potentially social, and most certainly personal change.” – Tara Bursey, artist, curator, and arts worker
