Raveling in the New Year
Detail, 2013
Durational performance to create a silence
Raveling in the New Year explores the attentive dedication and choreography of the hands through the repetition and transformational potential of labor. The residue of the daylong performance and recording of unraveling a large barge rope remained in the gallery accompanied by an edited version of the resulting audio.

Commissioned by Temple Contemporary in Philadelphia for their ongoing Silences series. Participating artists include Cornelia Parker, Selena Kimball, Max Goldfarb, and Sophie Calle.
