When starting a new dimensional piece, I'm learning to think ahead to how it will be displayed. I was discussing the possibilities with Ted in his office when I noticed some magnets on his white board. I knew I wanted the fabric to hang about half an inch apart and I found some cylindrical half inch long magnets on line.
I wanted the hanging device to be as invisible as possible, so I decided on acrylic and found a fabricator who drilled the holes for the magnets, and smaller holes to use for mounting it.
It turned out to be really easy to hang it this way, and it's easy to disassemble. The biggest problem is the magnets wanting to stick to anything metallic nearby.
Here are some close ups
I burned circles out, then hand stitched them back together
Below is a side view.
For whatever reason, my thinking on this series is somewhat out of sync. While finishing this up, I started thinking about the anger and frustration that goes along with loss, usually one of the first emotions felt. But I know there's no set rule for this. How to show anger? I'm not really sure.
