Narrative Threads

The Narrative Threads Project is an experimental wearable-text piece, unfinished. On narrow, torn strips of old, worn bed sheet I hand wrote the text of Percy Shelley's 'A Vindication of Natural Diet'; a philosophical treatise on animal welfare and vegetarianism. The project was part of the 'Compatior' project...compatior being latin for compassion. It was important for me to hand write this text, as he and Mary Shelley would have done...again and again. I calculated that I had 200 running feet of text...and had not yet finished. I dyed the cotton in pine and rosemary bark (for remembrance and for pity). I'm interested to 'write' a dress, or a garment that encloses the wearer in language and symbols.
