Exploring form and materails for neuron tapestry installation

I am experimenting using Sunbrella fabrics in combination with kimono fabrics, silk remnant scraps and Sashiko stitching. These images show sample elements for a large tapestry installation. Fabric is sewn over wire form frames. The back of the pieces will be covered with fabric of contrasting colors. This clean finishing of the backs is important as some of these pieces will curve away from the wall and the viewer will see glimpses of the underside as they move about the center from different angles and elevations.

 Early concept sketches can be seen in this earlier blog posting. I will be creating more refined pencils sketches soon. This 40ft wide x 15 ft tall  installation will in the main lobby outside the lecture hall at the Albert Sherman Center in Worcester.
