Burdens, by Carley Warren

Burdens starts with a group of wall-mounted, bracket-like wood sculptures. Hanging from dowels on the brackets are bundles of objects, most held in place by handwoven fishnet. The dowels bend under the weight of their burdens -- hence the show's title. In the middle of the room is "Burdens #1", a forest of freestanding versions using the same idea.
