“Flax is an ancient fiber, very fine, very durable; it’s use is as old as the pyramids. When I hand-spin flax between my fingers, it is soft and translucent. This small shelter is fragile, air and light move through it. When you are inside, the space enfolds you. The process of making the hundreds of feet of crocheted flax string has been a slow meditation. Much is left for the viewer to decide.”
