Cole creates work nodding to the surreality asked when examining our relationship to the notion of self and spirit in the IRL and the URL. Through digital formats such as the web-based interactive design of this site, to AR, and audio-visual film, all the way to analog mediums such as Silver Gelatin photography and collages, Cole’s work explores the interrelation between these seemingly binary realms and the non-binary structures between them. Through feelings, mindfulness, and light satire on the transcendental, as well as ways of being, their current work roots itself in iterative forms exploring memory and its impressions.

WearableTracy is a collection of wearable art made out of pipe cleaners. Each piece is intended to be worn as a mask or a crown. By wearing a new piece every day, I am inviting others to connect with me. I do not know in advance what form each day’s creation will take. The composition and shapes are inspired by my daughter Hannah’s daily drawings. WearableTracy is about friendship, human connection, keeping humanity alive, and being open to unknowns.
Clay pots exist in the ancient traditions of forming earth into vessels vital for humanity, to carry water. The mouth is a vessel, the ear is a vessel; we carry what we speak and hear, what we have spoken and what we have heard beyond our own lifetimes. In death too, the clay pot may carry remains of a loved one passed. Our bodies carry memories of those who have brought us here, our words and intentions filling gaps of past and future. Intuition is the gift of generations, the culmination of you and the trace of a path.
