96 in x 40 in x 0 in

This piece was created by the intuition of the hand. I let my hands take over knotting the strings and adding fabric scraps wherever felt right. This instinctually created piece became a meditation on adjusting to adulthood. The objects within the net representing what is held back by young adults.
