Growth/Growth (Memorial to a Past Sense of Self)
by Izzy Follow

For a recent project, titled Growth/growth (Memorial to a Past Sense of Self), I molded a boulder with wool felt, referencing the rocky landscape of my childhood home. The surface of the form is repeatedly worked, in order to create strange, mossy  “growths” in reference to both my personal growth and the growth of the environment that occurs while I am away from it. The materials were chosen based on textiles and colors that are reminiscent of New England. This project will be continued until the growth completely covers the boulder, becoming a cycle of new and old that speaks of evolution and change.
