net•work is an exhibition of soft sculpture made of felt and felted crochet. Long's pieces reference bodily forms and systems, while mirroring the interconnections and communications that occur in global systems. 

The slow, methodical processes of felting and crocheting reference and literally are the building of a system. The forms in this exhibition reiterate physical and communicative interconnection through interlocked layers and networks of felt and crochet and the juxtaposition of pieces with one another.

The boldly colored and amorphous forms that result from intense, methodical investigations are curiously attractive. They look otherworldly, or straight out of the human body.
