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.”
