Freya's Vortex of Expectations
Massachusetts College of Art

August 2014

The Freya series was born when I was playing with patterned duct tape on the filthy floor of my graduate school studio. I was stuck in my process. I took a break and went home to work on an assignment. I flipped through my picture book of mythological gods and creatures and discovered a wonderful picture of Freya the Norse Goddess with her chariot driven by domestic cats. I had a rare burst of inspiration and in a frenzy made my Freya installation series over the next year.
