My most recent project for Fibers was to research a textile and interpret it.
Lace is about two things: sex and death. Secondarily, it is also about delicacy, wealth, exploitation, and ruin for the sake of beauty.

The How:

My roommate Molly (pictured here) and I made stencils of each other lying on the floor.

Using one piece of lace (6 yards long) I cut out the figures at opposing ends of the material, leaving them connected by extremely long legs, and died Molly's half black.

Lastly, I screenprinted specific parts of each figure with cardboard from some box I found in a dumpster and hung from the cieling of the critique room with fishing wire.
