Project Description

Cocoons

Finished my cocoon sometime in the Spring of 2017. Photo of Tina Delhag on my studio floor, camera arranged by Tina, photographed by 5 year old 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.
