Ripening Chair

For this show with Form and Seek I want to start a conversation about what the word “isolation” means to me and how closely associated it has been with waiting, but also growth. The amount of waiting that has happened in 2021 has encouraged me to find joy in these periods of stillness and uncertainty. The end of the pandmeic is also the end of college for my peers and I. I have found myself reflecting on the substantial amount of growth that I see in myself and the people close to me despite nearly two years of feeling stagnant and unproductive. I created a ceramic chair where the growing form creates a place that will be enjoyable to wait in; an attempt to demonstrate that our minds are still advancing while we may be physically still. This unique chair is also meant to address a sense of self and individuality that I have found unavoidable.
