Title Gather-piece-stitch: the art of place
Date 2016
Description Philosopher Gaston Bachelard celebrates the "naive wonder we used to feel when we found a nest. This wonder is lasting, and today when we discover a nest it takes us back to our childhood or, rather, to a childhood; to the childhoods we should have had." I use the nest as a metaphor in my art with the hope of evoking some of that wonder. gather-piece-stitch: The Art of Place pieces together community voices with elements of our natural surroundings to create a sense of place.
