"Site Web" is an installation of black yarn that will connect each attendee’s chair throughout the evening. Each person will sit for the duration of the brief ceremony, which welcomes the second class of SITE Scholars via talks and videos. "Site Web" is intended to confuse the medium by estranging it from its cozy place in sentimental gifting. A dk weight black yarn will weave arbitrarily throughout the folding chair legs, often obstructing pathways and ease of seating.
Hoel says, “I want to mirror the ceremony’s purpose of connecting the community but also demonstrate the struggle of collaboration and awkwardness of personal connections.”
Hannah Hoel has lived in London, New York, Paris, L.A., D.C., and Santa Fe. She has degrees in visual culture, philosophy, and fine arts. As an artist, she was selected for the initial group of SITE Santa Fe Scholars and her award-winning multi-media work has been included in traditional galleries, new media festivals, and shown internationally. Hoel writes on arts and culture for THE magazine, Adobe Airstream, The Santa Fean, and the Huffington Post.
