Portfolio > OffCuts (2006-2007)

A bottomless stack of cloth scraps in the shape of an elongated oval (known in geometry and religion as the vesica pisces) inspired Offcuts. I set myself two parameters: 1) use only these pieces; 2) adhere to a basic law of physics which states “matter cannot be created or destroyed, but can only change its form”. If I cut apart a piece of fabric I had to form something else with what remained. Nothing went into the trash. No other restrictions. They were variously burned, waxed, sewn, bolted, rolled, stretched, crushed and combined with other materials.
