I gave a different talk on Saturday to another group of people, many of them students. One of the things I talked about was 'size'. Each piece is large enough to cover at least two or three people. I like making quilts that could be used to protect a family from the cold. Metaphorically, I want to protect humanity from what we fear in the twenty first century. War. Ecological disaster. Flu pandemic.
Ivan Jurakic (curator) and David Popplow (installer) did an amazing job with hanging the Protection Blankets exhibition. Thanks guys.
