I seek to honor the underappreciated utility of our guts by reintroducing them as objects of beauty. This body of work developed out of an attempt to release frustration with and eventually express gratitude for parts of my body with which I regularly feel at odds. Arranging and reimagining these shapes out of context makes them feel simultaneously comforting and disconcerting, familiar and alien. It is my hope that, once worn, these pieces will take on a humorous life of their own.
