Flock

The reflections that fueled this project dealt with personal attachment to physical objects and the psychological grasp they have on their owner. These quilts, which can be separated, folded up and pocketed, open to different stitched clippings of birds and their mates. The birds are hidden and held down in certain places by metallic thread embroidered in an interlocking cage structure. It is up to the viewer to decide whether or not to pull each window open to see the concealed pictures.
