Laura Holmes McCarthy’s work explores emotional connectivity through tactile, functional objects. Her practice is the product of her personal history–a long career in digital media, a familial tradition of craft, and recovery from the experience of complicated grief in early adulthood–all of which inform her desire to create physical multi-generational pathways in a material culture increasingly defined by digital artifacts.
