FANTASMAS DE PERÚ: MI FAMILIA Y LAS PERSONAS ANÓNIMA
56 years ago in Lima, over 300 people died trying to escape a soccer game gone wrong. I explore the treatment of history, oral history, and its consequences.
I make queer domestic objects that inspire moments of delight in everyday life. Using my own authenticity, I present a world of absurdity and possibility to set you free.
I excavate and amplify liminal spaces in the built environment galvanizing an inspired design practice.
A RELIQUARY FOR CAPITALISM
With hypervigilant evaluations of the threat potential from seemingly innocuous sources, my work aims to expose hyper-objectivity, breed contempt, and incite internal revolution.
A NICE-ISH BASEMENT HAPPENING: HOW MACGYVERED CHANDELIERS, EGGSHELLS AND A DEAD MOUSE CAN ENAMOR STRANGERS.
I cultivate imagination, attention and improvisation to design joyfully empowering experiences amid scarcity.
THE TACTILITY OF THOUGHT
Balancing the material and atmospheric, I explore forms that embody a unity between human perception and living forms of the natural world.
SHARING THE SHUTTLE: WHAT HAPPENS AFTER WE SAY #METOO ?
Sitting side by side at the loom, we share the shuttle to rebuild trust, joy and friendship through the rhythm of weaving together.
DEEPENING SURFACES: A PROPOSAL FOR THE INTIMATE AND CONNECTIVE POTENTIAL
I wield surface design to challenge internalized systems of self-curation, subversively patterning textiles to share my personal narratives and offer connection.

Join PNCA's MFA Applied Craft + Design Chair Sara Huston, faculty member and mentor Abbie Miller and artist and craftswoman Annica Cuppetelli in conversation as they delve into their individual use of both hand work and machine techniques, and share their research on the various layers of production and information that are intertwined with objects, processes, and materials, as well as their need to evolve, adapt, and establish craft in relationship to making and industry. The event will take place with Miller’s ongoing exhibition as a backdrop for the talk.
