This selection of ceiling hung soft sculpture, initially referred to as Sag, was conceived during a silent retreat in the Berkshire mountains in March of 2016. Crocheting is a meditative practice and while sitting in silence the artist allowed the yarn to form itself, the shape came spontaneously and began to self replicate. After playing with the shape, size, color and materials for two years she created an installation called The Space Between which debuted in 2018.

In 2018 InLiquid Art + Design presented a new body of soft sculptures by Melissa Maddonni Haims, which captured the “Stranger Comes to Town” theme in a provocative, dynamic and interactive way. Her anthropomorphic forms evoke the feeling of being in unfamiliar places, inviting viewers to imagine otherworldly beings in small spaces, while themselves being fully immersed in a large-scale, tangible installation.
