When You and I Could Play Together

When You and I Could Play Together (2016) comprises objects conceived from my memories of playing with my autistic sister. The remakes are scaled to adult size, made from fabric and wood and painted (?) chroma-key green. They are a present absence, like a memory. When we were children, the toys had simultaneous functions – a tunnel was a place for us to hide from “the monster” (our dad) while building my sister’s strength and sense of space. I continue to use this doubleness  where both hiding and fortification happen in pathways both mental and physical.
