I am just starting to mess around with fiber.
I’m playing with incorporating drawing and painting with plant specimens, insect wings, and other mixed media, and working with a bit of dimension and texture. Woven fabric also lends itself well to graphing data, since it’s already got a built-in x-y axis.
The magic about fiber is that you start something of one dimension, a rope, a string, a LINE. Then you cross it over itself or weave it and you have two dimensions, a SHAPE. But when you knot it, or knit or crochet or wrap or tangle or sew it, you make something in three dimensions, a FORM.
