"I meditated a little bit once I got the clothes and felt like there was this sort of "urban nature" aura to them. Materials that are delicate, beautiful, natural but cut in an almost urban-warrior-girl kind of way. I wanted to find spaces in Austin that spoke to that, abandoned couches on the side of the road, textured brambles littered with plastic bags, this kind of comforting juxtaposition.
I canoed for two hours to get to an off-limits island right next to the big dam in Austin, there are turtles, vultures, swans and herons everywhere surrounding the algae rocks but the backdrop is this eerily beautiful dam! I've always wanted to get over there and finally did. I broke both my cameras paddling away from cops with megaphones but had already put the film rolls in three layers of plastic bags, so they were safe!"
