In anticipation of a studio visit with the Decorative Arts and Design Council of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, we created a fleshy pink, 1,500-square-foot installation called “Cosmic Histology.” The idea was to produce an immersive, architectural experience that enveloped the work on display with a womb-like energy. To achieve this, we developed a new textile that proposed the idea of weaving without a loom. Nine miles of cotton fiber overlapped in a way that represented biological tissue.
For the occasion, we also created a limited-edition linocut print titled “Cosmic Histology” for members of the council.
