time passes over the earth
tight with the turbulent stuff
dust of the world
life and earth

100 percent silk are on one wall.
100 percent polyester are on another.
There are maybe two or three that are blends - I deal with those intuitively and logically.
My husband peeks in and says...."This is totally off track . What are you doing???"
I have no answer.
Maybe, I have an idea to make star maps.
They were given to me by a nurse who worked 20 years in a nursing home.
I can well imagine where these ties came from and all the stories that surround each one.

This makes me re-think so much.
Cloth has played many roles in ritual, symbol, political and social power, and in our daily domestic lives. Considering the story of the materials I choose to use in this wider aspect, I am given new ways to work with them on a conceptual level.
I want to make physical objects with materials that can be touched and felt that yield more thoughts and imaginings than one can possibly understand.

What are the subjects that I consider essential?
Those that have to do with notions of sexuality, spirituality, and our nervousness about death.
Overt political art doesn't interest me.
I think it's better if you can trick people, if the topic is presented in a subversive way.
Then you can catch their interest with beauty, and they will think more about it later on.
It will rise up within them, the hidden meaning.
They will see what they need to see.
