Selective amnesia

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.


  1. love the "experiment detail"! love a 100-inch piece of dupioni. sounds like your fire is starting to smolder!

    1. Just picked up the first organza piece after 2 1/2 days on the rust. Will be interesting to compare it with the dupioni when it's dry.
