Representations of Architeuthis dux/ giant squid/ kraken from historical and contemporary, and both fantastical and actual source material, form the basis of these quilted sculptures. They are intermediaries and metaphors for the anxiety of uncomfortable/ uncommon forms of bodies/ beauty, and our own place of comfort and safety.
