|"Jet Lag" ©2014, 27" x 27"|
Jet lag is an interesting experience. Upon arrival, I shift into survival mode, and despite my addled mind staring out at unfamiliar scenery, I manage to find food and make conversation and contemplate some interesting thoughts about what is going on around me. I guess that is the connection with the film, it's a familiar, fuzzy place. (And, coincidentally, when I looked the film up in the imdb, it was released in September (2003). Nice!)
My piece, "Jet Lag"began as a cityscape of Tokyo at night. I envisioned layers of silk organza and satin over the hand-dyed cotton background bringing city lights to life. But when the background was finished, I wasn't sure layering anything on top would add anything to it. I liked the simple, "modernness" of it! So, it remains, all pieced, hand-dyed cotton, machine quilted. 27" x 27"
