”The Journals, made on 12 meter long bolts of silk woven for kimonos, are stitched on daily. Sequential vertical lines mimic Asian script, something I was moved to do when deciding to work on the kimono cloth, so they can be unrolled, like scrolls, to be ”read”. A space separates the days. When two spaces are skipped, two days have passed without working.”
