Whole cloth is a fabric straight from loom, intact, a blank canvas of possibilities.
But what if that fabric is made from recycled or repurposed textiles? Does it limit the possibilities? Does it retain any vestiges of its previous life? Does it resonate in the hand, to the touch?
Does it remember?
I am grateful to the Ontario Arts Council, the City of Ottawa and the Canada Council for the Arts for their financial support of this project.
