my computer died. i had everything backed up on an external hard drive. but somehow all that info is gone too. so 2 years of digital work, all my documentation of my work, personal photos, music, research, writing is all gone. all that exists is what is on this blog and my facebook account.

Cord is my new epic project. it is about the way we build community. all the fabric is from stuff i collected for "my mother's blood" and from free boxes and donations from folks in my community. fabric is a part of our history and how we create connections with each other. revolutions have started over carpets and quilts. this is an on going interactive installation, people gather braid and talk and connect. i sew it together, it continues to grow, change shape, size, color. i was really blessed to have tons of folks come to my house and hang out with me and braid. shay pointed out that this is also about me accepting support and energy around my mother's death.
