Where Creativity Pools: Ceilings

Colored thread hand embroidered into a black & white photograph of a classroom at Wash. U. in St. Louis.

Where Creativity Pools is a series of mixed media work that combines photography and embroidery. The colored thread personifies creativity, tracking how it would respond to the world around it and where it would collect if we could see it.

I turned the photographs in these series black and white because the absence of color changes the images just enough to see them in a new light. It is in realms of observing what is normally overlooked that creativity and imagination reside. In this way, the black and white images offer themselves as spaces where invisible forces become tangible.
