An 80-piece installation for Bumbershoot

I was invited to include work in Found and Unbound, an exhibition featuring artists who repurpose found objects in their work. Originally I was asked to create a small set of embroidered postcards, but after completing a satisfying 42 piece series earlier this year and also wanting to work more with installation, I decided to up the ante a bit. In just a few weeks, I sewed up 66 new postcards; in a single six hour session, the work seemed to just fall on the wall with precise ease. I am very pleased with the result. The project may have destroyed my wrist, but it also may be the most satisfying thing I’ve made for a wall yet. The whole series of cards and other works are available in the shop. See the install larger on the blog.
