a large fiber project

Jennifer Marsh in Syracuse, NY, is in charge of the International Fiber Collaborative, the point of which is to think about our dependence on oil. The project consists of collecting 3-foot-squares, made of some sort of fibers, that will be joined together to cover an abandoned gas station in DeWitt, NY. The installation will start in April 2008.

My contribution to the project is "Sunset over Picnic." The center is knitted; the background is upholstery fabric that could be used as a tablecloth—very picnic-like, eh? We tend to drive to parks to have picnics; we depend on our automobiles to get out there to see Nature in all its eventfulness.
