For this installation, I chose to use textiles that had already been circulated through Goodwill stores multiple times. The connection of these items to our community points to the narratives of those who donate, those who purchase and those who are hired, trained and helped by facets of the organization. Responding to the existing architectural elements of this room, I focused on the light, color, texture, transparency and opacity of the fabric in order to make compositional decisions. The material was then cut, pinned, knotted and sewn in order to create the installation, Stories Untold.
