        Hand printed newsprint, cut, twisted and woven.

          “The word textiles comes from the Latin textilis, from the word texere meaning to weave. Textus is a woven fabric, and a derivative of the word textiles is text.

            The act of weaving reminds me of reading and writing, back forth, back forth, smaller parts making up a whole, like a page in a book.

              “When I twist the strips with text, I read with my hands.
              When I weave the twisted strips, I am writing.”
