As I was floating in the stars my hair was being braided by old hands, or were they spiders weaving my hair? Spider in the Cosmos is inspired by a dream and created as an act of appreciation for this experience. In terms of artistic process, liminal dreaming is a form of research. This piece is an exploration of what it means to listen to our dreams and how this practice can contribute to connecting with our ancestral ontologies and epistemologies through the act of making and reflecting.
