This piece is inspired by Louise Bourgeois' "Maman" and "Spider". These works were an ode to Bourgeois' mother, who was a weaver. As an ode to Bourgeois and an ode to my own mother, I made this spider. My mom and I both sew, so the body is sewn from upcycled fabric.  The four plastic babies inside the balloon eggs represent her children, and the eyes of the spider hang at my mom's head height.

Special thanks to my wonderful partner for helping me to install this.
