Date of Defense 2009-04-21 Availability unrestricted AbstractMoppet*Sense is a hybrid collaboration between my adult self and a fictionalized version of me as a young girl, or moppet. Through use of craft, textiles, sound, light, color and narrative the work describes a space where both woman and moppet can join to engage with one another in a playful exchange of knowledge and experience.
Saturated hues, exaggerated scale and a playful approach to the handicrafts offer the viewer an overwhelming, hyper-realistic experience of girlhood and play, which they can each physically explore and navigate throughout. The work refers to the nostalgic and domestic through its employment of familiar domestic objects, materials, space and craft. It seeks to uncover ways that the seemingly disparate worlds of girlhood and womanhood can meet, question and better understand the desires, aesthetic and interior worlds of one another.
