bind is a research project portraying the tenuous links and strong connections existing between individuals in close interpersonal relationships. It stems from a desire to cease making in isolation for a singular model and to draw others into the work.  There is a perceived existing level of intimacy  depicted in this series, with several works suggesting exchange pathways for genetic material from one body to another.
