Helen Mirra has an installation at the Armory Arts Center in Pasadena called Standard Incomparable. In it she asked weavers to weave 7 stripes of alternating local natural undyed fiber. Each stripe should be a hand width wide and and arm’s length long. Each weaving becomes a description of the locale and of the weaver.
My contribution was woven on our Mixtape Light Neutrals warp. Since I live in a city and local can be defined many ways, I unraveled 2 vintage sweaters I bought here- brown Peruvian alpaca and the other Irish fisherman’s knit natural white wool.
