Mending Moss | Variable | Machine tufted wool, cotton, silk, rayon, and acrylic. | Mending Moss is an installation viewed its first iteration in a three-person exhibition with Naomi Falk and Amy Sacksteder, Interstitial Interruptions, at the Detroit Center for Design & Technology (DCDT) on Woodward in Detroit, Michigan. Each piece was tufted based on personal observations from travel observing the built environment. The lush and beautiful velvety feel of moss is alluring and one that captivates my attention. Moss often thrives in spaces where mortar securely held brick has weakened and is in need of repair. Working with a color and texture variant from low pile tufting with bone, and golden yellows and transitioning to higher loop piles with a crescendo of metallic gold yarns and ribbon that fall to the floor.
