Handing out there personal cards, a page of many from a story untold, these French achieved individual statements down to the fonts, each individual then the next. Stitched together cut and sewn again, they will add to the many forms that are being woven into the webbing of string that will consume the apartment.

So i have a tour group coming through the studio at the very end of September, I am giving a lecture and showcasing my work to them. These tiny pill boxes, i am stitching foot prints all over them and filling them with different small objects. Many more to come, they will be suspended in the air by threads that are being woven through out the apartment. Just as the above , personal cards, are idiosyncratic vessels holding pathways and direction, though their pattern or weave might be chaotic and sometimes create deviations during interactions (with environments and/or other individuals) if the path way that is set before them is continued the piece as a whole is completed. Which is not to say that is a path that we make or was predestined, it is a direction guided in truth and love.
These last of the pictures are of "Found Direction". The black on the canvas are stitches hundreds of independent foot prints and the bottom portion a solid satin stitch, hand embroidered. Placed in the underside of the grill, sits a glass lens that magnifies the weave of the canvas weave... The locks and tube held the two large cylinder prescription boxes while they where being bound to the side of the frame, remain still. Once stretched I wove the inner structure over the grill, each case holds a smaller pill box suspended by individual paths stitched into the larger cylinders. This is from the foot print series, ideas of free thought, pure individual, and destiny are responded to.
