I am working on a variety of art submissions, writing projects, and fiber enterprises at the moment, so my posts these next few weeks might seem a bit scant. Apologies in advance for this. During my recent research on innovative ideas related to 'fashioning self and the environment', I came across this amazing Casa Básica Project by Martín Azúa. I love that this mobile unit folds into a simple square that one can slip into one's pocket or personal tote. It's pure volumetric poetry with a low-impact sort of footprint. This is what great design is all about.

From Malko Turnovo to NYC, the village where my 'plarn' was made
by a talented local artisan named Abibe
I am excited to announce that I will be exhibiting some of my recycled fiber forms, including pieces that incorporate 'plarn' made in Eastern Bulgaria, during VOGUE Knitting Live NY in January 2012. This three day showcase will be part of an on-site exhibit curated by the event's organizers. Stay tuned for sneak previews of crocheted and twined 'plarn' samples.
