Unmakings, 2009

Installation: paper clothing patterns, cloth, thread, straight pins, projected single-channel video
video loop duration for projection 7min.
24 feet high x 15 feet wide x 50 feet long

This installation centered on concepts of clothing making, conveyed as drawings using thread and form. I first followed the directions of clothing patterns, then departed and allowed for new systems to dictate the results. Unraveling and reconfigured threads were projected onto the limestone gallery wall in a series of stop-motion animations, which abstracted knitting’s inherent system.
