Cloth. To Cloth.
Or maybe cloth into cloth.
There are certainly enough cardboard boxes to work with. I have come to look at packaging in a new way. Kindling. Ways to control weeds. Support for cloth building. Look at this box. Something breakable came in it, so ingeniously designed, strong, stands up to so much weight and abuse. There was an idea here. And the form, Origami really. ( video in this post, about the box loom, in case you missed it)
And pushpins, who doesn't have a basket of those? The warp here, the original 3, were tied around the box, bows in the back. Then I kept going, used the pins to hold the loose strips in place so I could take a few stitches through them, to hold the web. Momentarily thinking, well I could just leave it like this. The poetry of process is not always romantic. Still a form in itself.
But really, my concept here was not to create art. It was to build or rebuild cloth. Patchwork, really, in perspective. Now useful in many ways. And beautiful. Beauty is also a concept. An idea.
There was a variation here. I cut into one of the main warp strips, splitting it, and wove into it as two strips. Can you find that? That's another idea, cutting into, couldn't do that if it was thread. Next time I will do a video.
Been busy with Seed to Seed, and thinking a lot about Dust to Dust.
