You and I (2016) comprise 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. When we were children, the toys had simultaneous functions – a tunnel was a place for us to hide from “the monster” while building my sister’s strength and sense of space. I continue to use a doubleness, where cultures are not only suggestions of family members but where the operations of mental and physical play toy with sentimentality.
