A collection of approximately 75,000 hand-stitched black crochet thread tally marks on a grid of black muslin.
Artist's Statement on this specific work:
"This work comes from my experiences at the intersection of ideas about isolation and infinity. A collection of approximately 75,000 hand-stitched tally marks were accumulated over several months in various locations, including many hours at the side of my father's bed before he passed away earlier this year."
