lifing

Hi again. when I think about life immediately I need to add ing at the end to indicate the dynamic multiple senses that are life. For me lifing in a continual process of tying untying; crossing over and under; touching not touching; doing and undoing at the same time or not; being tangled entangled or untangled;tangling entangling and untangling; here and there;back and forth;circles or straight lines; dots or blocs; hard and soft and what are(sic) in between.

this is my diagram that changes and leads to another and another

About hayacohen

Hi I am Haya and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in such an exciting workshop. I have recently graduated with PhD at the school of humanities Griffith university Gold Coast. I am an interdisciplinary arts practitioner . My recent work incorporated living growing textiles. I grew my cotton from a seed; harvested the cotton; extracted the seeds from the cotton; implanted barley seeds into the cotton fibre and rolled them on my body to create the yarns. I wove these yarns using my body as a loom.I was interested in materialising the spaces inbetween—my own body parts as my own nomadic spaces and the spaces between people. When watered the woven pieces grew and performed their lifecycle in the exhibition space.

  1. Haya,
    I find this really beautiful, I’m sure it is partly because I am so familiar with you and your work, but also I find as I follow each ‘thread’ within this photo I am expectant – waiting for something more to happen – wondering what interaction will bring in more forms and intersections as each thread veers from one point to the next.
    It has me pondering…
