In 2007 I was commissioned to make a textile piece for the contemporary section of Lloyd Cotsen’s textile collection – the Box Project. The pieces commissioned for this collection all had to fit into archival boxes.
The idea that evolved, was to make a book. Books and Boxes have been related for over a thousand years. Books were precious; hand made, written and decorated, and were often placed in boxes. The idea which eventually evolved was to make several books, which when displayed side by side created a pattern sequence, with no beginning or end.
