Fiber Artist Feature: Corey March

It’s always fun when fiber artist Corey March stops by the store!  Her Identity Tapestry installation always requires oodles and oodles of yarn.

Corey collects natural fiber yarns and over dyes them so that no two balls are alike.  When you visit the installation, you are asked to choose a color of yarn you feel represents you.  As you unravel the yarn, you wrap it around statements on the wall that reflect who you are.  Complex portraits develop as simple statements are linked together.  As more and more people add their lines, patterns emerge and a tapestry of human identity forms which is specific to the particular time, place and people who created it.

Her Write for Me installation is another site to behold.

Her newest piece will debut tomorrow evening at Z Space in San Francisco (6-10 PM).  It runs from July 8th to July 27th.  Be sure to check it out!
