Alterations, 2011

Alteration no. 1

Alteration no. 1, hand-embroidered postcard, 9-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches

A thirty-postcard experiment.

This series was made for my one-night exhibition with Erin Frost at Vignettes. In addition to our collaborative series (i/ii/iii), we each altered a large batch of existing materials. I chose to work exclusively with embroidery on vintage postcards, allowing for no two repeating patterns.
