Exhibition Details

Taken together, the works show kinship with Noguchi’s interests in interactivity, traditional craft, the symbiosis of spaces real and imagined, and the exploration of personal and cultural history to project universal ideas. Like Noguchi’s works, these textiles open a path between the physical and metaphysical, what lies within and outside of the artist and the viewer.

Additional Details

This series of blankets are inspired by water, swamp, sun, ether, and wind, and are crocheted and dyed by hand using herbs, natural and fiber reactive dyes, on sustainably sourced cotton yarn. Each weighted blanket is made to support people in sleeping comfortably and swimming within their dreaming worlds.
