Swell was an outdoor sculpture installed at The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences sculpture garden, Loveladies, New Jersey, October 2013-June 2014. The piece was eroded by the seasonal changes in weather on the island. The materials are made for use outdoors but became worn and embedded to the sand and grass it rest upon. Plants began to grow through the open construction of crocheted flagging tape. This work reflects upon adornment of outdoor space over time and the undulation of textile drapery, wave and wind.
