IN.BRS.2019.39, Shadow sacks over dark pool was a collaboration with Scott Sandford. It consisted of three of my hand knitted and felted black Shadow sacks suspended with meat hooks and chains over a dark reflective pool constructed by Scott. Fluid dripped into the pool from two of the hanging sculptures, disrupting the refective surface. The astonishing, atmospheric setting amplified the mesmeric effects of the installation.
