Fabric of Time by Sara Cannon

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.

  1. sara…. I really, really dig what you’ve created here. (I am bummed that I missed the opening!) “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.” wow. I have no words to describe what I’m thinking now. I feel a connection to what you’ve created and its meaning. I want to see it in person! did you have clothes from childhood, too?
