Neuron Tapestry Project

After a long hiatus, I am beginning to work again on a mixed media textile project. The client is a neurological research center. There will ultimately be three panels, (each 4' x 5' x 2.5"), in this installation.
Here is my last posting on this project and the initial concept sketches created when the project was specified to be of different dimensions. Currently I am hand stitching fabrics to the wire framework.

Here are two elements completed against the background wire frame beginning to take shape.
Japanese Sashiko stitching representing neuron synapse and electrical impulse pathways.
Needle point waste canvas added to the frame work as an underlay.
Sunbrella fabric overlay being added to one of the sections.
