I don’t usually do mail art, but I really like the idea of getting art in the mail, so I showed up and made this piece for a show of international collage, paint, assemblage, and written word artists. This was right at the start of my interest in traditional Japanese boro textiles. This is a very simple example of the simple running stitch (“sashiko”) used in boro.
In May 2015, I entered the #The100DayProject. The premise was simple, but hard: do something for 100 days. I wrapped, tied, and knotted 6″ of twine for (over) 100 days. I swear, this little thing grew like a chickenheart.
