“Daybook” is a textile journal, recording life slowly, into a sampler of memories. Some hang on the wall like necklaces or lounge on a chair, a record of decisions made, both artistically and physically. Intimate objects, they evoke the storytelling history of textiles. This body of work is another avenue to explore feminized emotion and handicrafts. The process of over under over under sometimes feels like a translation of the monotony of living and then it is interrupted by an oversized paper clip or a bird’s feather, the same way a daily walk to the subway can be shifted by the full moon’s rising.
