Entering into a parenting role awakens unexpected concerns, fears, joys, and anticipations. Instincts go into overdrive as life’s main purpose shifts from self-preservation to protection and nurturing our child or children. The life once mapped out, or even the life in mid pursuit of, becomes magnified and heavily interrogated within this shift. My installation joins different environments, objects and works to explore the roles taken on during the tender and transformative incubation period of infancy and toddler stages. The role of protection is the focus of this body of work, using symbolic representations that contain processes within the natural world.
