First time rigging a weaving and manipulating its form off the wall. I spent the first two hours hating the piece and wanting to set it on fire but stuck with it and kept seeing what would work. For a materials test, it’s not terrible and it works within my overarching theme: exploring absence and presence in art through the neurological breakdown of the mind and body from diseases such as Lewy Body Dementia and Fibromyalgia. This semester will end up a big learning curve for me as I determine how these pieces will ultimately take flight.
Test piece #1 – fabric, photo paper, and fishing line
