For this series I collected scraps of found or used fabric and pieces them together into fragile quilt like objects that reference both pillows and paintings. Allowing only additive or mending processes (no cutting or tearing), I responded to a sense of what the scraps would like to be and to which other pieces they would like to be connected. In the same sense that clothing covers the vulnerability of human nakedness while also presenting an identity of the wearer, the shapes of fabric in the ‘memory cloth’ pieces are present in their own identities, showing evidence of wear and absorption. ‘Memory cloth’ was hosted on Vignettes’ instagram gallery, “Vignettes Weekender” June 3-5. For this iteration of the series, I investigated Instagram's ability to record a temporal space by documenting the quilts in my home alongside my bed linens, carpets, and other intimate surroundings.
