“a shape made through its unraveling” is a large wall work composed of ceramic pendants, each of which is offered to visitors to the gallery to take, wear, and keep. By taking a pendant, each visitor participates in an ongoing performative act that manifests both connection to others and the necessary sharing of resources in order to promote mutual well being. Rethinking what ownership of an artwork can mean, the work exists not in the consolidation of the individual pieces, but in the spatial connections that are made by the dispersal of its parts.
