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 purposeful level of intimacy depicted in this series, with several works suggesting exchange pathways for genetic material from one body to another.
bond is shown in use in Fragile Machines, a film created and directed by Derek Johnson & Luke Smithers 2019, New York
