I use discarded plastic as my medium and weave it onto a large loom to provide it with greater strength. In a work such as the "Crucified Christ," the discarded plastic works with the theme that "He was despised and rejected," from Isaiah 53:3. Discarded plastic is tossed away without a thought, and Jesus was crucified as if he were a criminal, yet his resurrection transformed him, and he offers that same transformation to all of us by the power of his Holy Spirit.
In the work, "Shroud: Unwrapping Lazarus," I knit a 15"x 32' long shroud from plastic, and have used it in a performance/ritual involving 6-7 other people. In "Cape: The Good News," I knit the NY Times plastic bags and 200 beads into a floor length cape
