An exploration of using traditional boat building craft, specifically skin-on-frame boats, to inform the creation of a disparate object. I saw potential in using the same visual and structural qualities, a bent wooden frame with a fabric skin. The origins of this craft start with Arctic Eskimo tribes who made them for the necessity of hunting and built them from local materials: drift wood, whale bones, seal skin, etc. Postcolonization of North America, capitalization, and the continued marginalization of indigenous communities have led to the deterioration of knowledge and traditions. By making this chair I am attempting to highlight a tradition, craft, and set of ideals that is threatened by climate change.
