|Pat Vivod c2013. Detail of direct object printing on dupioni|
I know from experience that curating a show takes a lot of work and time, after all it was only two years ago that I was involved with the innovations show. But selective amnesia allowed my brain to forget those many hours I spent behind the scenes organizing everything, and to gloss over that tidbit about making a whole new body of work on top of the curating because I was also IN the show.
Here I am again, curating (thankfully with the help of Elizabeth Adams-Marks) and participating with 361 days left before the show opens. That's enough time isn't it? Because I am JUST getting started on my own work! (I had an epiphany a couple of weeks ago.)
I'm not prepared to explain anything yet, but here's a detail of the first experiment. I'm planning an edition of three in organza, the first of which was just laid out today. This detail is of dupioni picked up a week ago using the same objects. The whole piece is about 100 inches long.
