everyone grows up.
everyone has memory.
everyone wears clothes.
– this interactive installation explores the fabric and communities combined with nostalgia, forward movement, associations, and memory.-
The fabric swatches pinned delicately to the wall are all cut out and taken from different clothes that I have worn throughout my life. Every piece of material invokes a specific memory, a feeling, or a time period. All of them are threaded to the center piece. The center piece resembles a wind chime, kite, and loom. Hanging in the center, there is a piece of a quilt which has sewn some of the fabric pieces together to create a unified piece, but still unfinished. When the center piece sways or is pushed, all the fabric pieces move and sway like a school of fish.. all bound to an unknown rhythm. The interaction is playful but elegant and quiet, looking back and looking forward.
