In my current project, Wearing, I unravel braided rugs to make them into what they may have been. Braided rugs were made from old coats, blankets and clothing. They were used to embellish the home and keep the floors warm—a sustainable way of living. When the braids are unraveled and pressed open, leopard-like spots of dirt and perfectly aligned holes reveal human movement through time. Making these is something like an excavation: I uncover the luminous patterns and colors of the fabrics and admire the craft and labor of each anonymous maker. I keep the remaining part of the rug attached to the object, to allude to the cyclical nature and shifting boundaries of the objects, and to honor the makers of these works.
