Hydrogen Bond

For the Hydrogen Bond installation, I constructed an eight foot tall, twenty-four foot long screen which diagonally divided the gallery space at Reed College. The unlikely construction material — thread — is composed in a hexagonal web-like pattern with paper disks entangled in it, visually representing hydrogen bonds (one of the primary mechanisms by which papermaking fibers adhere to each other in the dry state) and metaphorically symbolizing the myriad connections in our lives.
