And Before One, What are you Counting? explores the meeting between the astral and material. The laborious processes of weaving, spinning, and dyeing are devotional practices where the artist reckons with the existential reality of time to commune with the sacred, the mysterious, and the unknown. Cosmologies of the creation of the universe and the infinite nature of divinity are explored, inspired by studying Jewish spiritual texts with a feminist, queer, and mystical lens.
