The Field Trip Project was installed in the Echigo-Tsumari Triennial 2012 on 26 August. This is the largest international art exhibition in the world and this year it runs from 29 July to 18 September 2012.
Recently Marc and I tried our hand at batik dyeing to make two silk panels for a large family project to make a quilt for one of Marc’s cousins who is getting married. Congratulations James and Nicola!
The photos here show the two panels being painted with wax and dye in leaf patterns traced from photos of our garden. One panel shows a morning glory vine and the other shows hydrangea leafs. The dyes were special – Marc’s grandfather worked on creating them!
A miracle! A gluten free, wheat free, carb free, yeast free, starch free schnitzel!
Our sculpture Yuuki Flower is going to Japan next week!! Today we gave the box of quilted leaves and velcro outfitted studend backpack back to the curator, Daisuke Takeya, who will be taking all the Field Trip Project artwork to Japan next week. The work will travel around Japan in disaster affected areas to cheer people up and bring people together. I cannot think of a better function for art.
