west walk warp

west walk warp 2013

I recently finished a group installation piece inspired by the work of Christo and Jeanne Claude. We used handwoven silk to create a border on a little used campus pathway. Once installed it looked like a large scale warp strung through the trees. We were interested in seeing how our installation might change the use of the space. We kept it up for a week and were pleased to see that it added warmth and a sense of peace to the area. While the fabric did get a bit weighed down in the rain, it stood up pretty well. Afterwards, the fabric was shared among our classmates. I’m curious to see it’s next incarnation.
