Cocoon


silk_and_sea_lluna


First recording of my daughter´s transitional cocoon (Kai´s house, Collserola, Spain). This cocoon is made from found silk cut into strips and crocheted into a shape big enough for my daughter to immerse herself. This idea developed from observing her occasional desire or frustration of wanting to still be an infant. I realized that there is an important psychological transformation that occurs between the infant and the child, much like the later metamorphosis between the child and the adult. I wanted to give her a physical space to accept that she is no longer an infant while being able to feel a full body embrace like the infant once knew.

I am presently making one for myself. November, 2016.
