Tent of the Winter Praire
An Installation

A tent of the Winter Prairie is really an homage to the wonderful qualities of thin handmade flax paper. The paper was made on a vacume table in long sheets, it is very thin, translucient and strong. I cut it into strips, glued them toogether and knitted the panels on a pair of bambo poles. The knitted paper makes a wonderful rustle that sounds like someone walking through tall dry grass.

All of us made hide aways , secret places long agoin different times. This is my memory of those times.
