Michele maintains an interdisciplinary practice, which incorporates a wide spectrum of resources and techniques that constantly explore a range of approaches to communicating how we live with change. The majority of her portfolio includes the creation of environmental installations that support the growth of plants in handmade paper, fabric, and industrial constructions, which alter and transform as they go through a full life cycle during the course of an exhibition. These large-scale fabrications utilize unique lighting, water irrigation systems, natural and recorded sounds to evoke a visceral encounter that questions the tenuous relationship between humans, nature, time and the built environment.
