Weaving Language examines the poetics of weaving traditions through historical research as well as contemporary practices. Attempting to dismantle and rebuild commonplace understandings of the history of writing, WL focuses on fiber-based forms as a longstanding but often overlooked medium for record keeping, storytelling, and poetry.


Published in an edition of 5. Collected by the MoMA Library, the Watson Library at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Joan Flasch Artist Book Collection at the School of the Art Institute of  Chicago, the John Hay Library of Brown University, and The Anni and Josef Albers Foundation.
