Nomadic Art Net
Started in 2007, the U.S. military mosquito net tent, is representative of the post 9/11 climate and sentiment toward the others, migrants or refugees . The mosquito net creates an illusory shelter, while its lightness emphasizes nomadic life, mobile and exposed to the elements. I embrace my otherness addressing transition, alienation, and seek to build a sense of place and a community.

I am a facilitator storyteller when inviting people to embroider with me on Nomadic Art Net in various settings, like homes, barrios, hospitals, harbors, camping, markets, massage parlors, stores, galleries, art institutions, parks, shelters...
The marks on the Nomadic Art Net are a narration of its travels to places I lived or traveled to during the sessions.
Nomadic Art Net is a two components installation. One is bearing the marks of embroidery sessions, the other documenting them in a video, a multi-languages collage recognizing the handworks contributions. Recently a second mosquito net tent joined my journey Nomadic Art Net I
