Cabin is modeled on my childhood home; my primarily residency until the age of five. It was the second home my parents build from scratch; even cutting their own timbers. I grew up in "the Cabin" after my parents’ divorced. Surrounded by the evidence of their relationship, but only witnessing conflict, I became fascinated by how quickly and violently relationships can change and fall apart.
Here, I hand carved twigs and stitched them together using sewing thread in two colors; each one representing one of my parents’ hands.
