Carpet, family, and immune systems work similarly as collectives of individuals bonded together that act as protection from the toils of the outside world. But what is created when that structure is disrupted? For this collection of work, I used carpet to actualize personal narratives surrounding family dynamics, disability, and chronic illness. Using creation through destruction as a guiding principle, I moved from creating my own carpets with a tufting machine to repurposing carpet remnant from my family's flooring shop. Throughout my childhood carpet was used as a mediator for comfort, which I'm now using to soften medical spaces as I go through treatment alone. As current events make you hyperaware of the importance of sterile surfaces, the use of carpet in traditionally sterile medical spaces asks you to consider ideas of domestic comfort, medical isolation, and the risk of infection that immune compromised people dealt with pre-pandemic and on an heightened level now.
