Everyday interaction, purposeful interaction; Impact overlaps as we affect one another through our encounters and evolve. I designed Table Talk as a metaphor for human relationships. Through raising or lowering the four surface wings, different meanings emerge.
Contemplating further installation of Table Talk, I set the piece up in a common setting, the dining room, and went on to photographically document my personal interactions around this table over the course of a year. The resulting interwoven tapestry, Around the Table (Social Fabric), signifies overlapping friendships and relationships and also personal change as I was displaced from a home I had occupied for 10 years and resettled in a new neighborhood.
