what did you use the ROOM for, before Spirit Cloth which i think i will
refer to as bSc.
"a room is such a personal space concept"
so...i liked your question, Helen. and all day i thought.
what DID i do.
well, i did make some things...trying to get back to
feeling of them. gourds. fiber figures.
i GREW a lot of things and spent maybe almost a
year with Sharon Astyk's work Depletion and Abundance
trying to learn all i could about what "Sustainable"
ment...individually, here, as a member of my community
here and as a citizen of the planet.
i looked at my kids when they were here and then
at their pics when they had left. i thought about
i looked at my self. who on earth is She?
i guess i learned a lot. and i brought it all into
the Room was i think a statement for me of having
it was a celebration of that. of having imagined
something that didn't happen as it had been imagined.
and then enduring the reality until .... hmmmm
until it freed me.
the Room was the "gesture: of that. my daughter,
jenny, and i smashed out, cut out with a sawzall
the wall of the trailer and made the ROOM.
i need to think more about this now.
but, Helen, that's what i did, pretty much.
