For the Threadbare show in December 2013, I created a series of quilted, illuminated fabric domes inspired by the architectural work of Buckminster Fuller. The pieces are shown here in normal lighting and in the dark.
The pieces reflect on the process of creating communities and building connections between individuals. As a quilt is constructed of different fabric patterns and textures, each member of a community brings elements of their own experience and history to the circle of which they are a part. Forms inspired by geometry speak to the structure and stability that community relationships may provide to the individual.
