...it is the mask that i have chosen to be the transitional element from the house to the lava. the inside ring of blocks will be a wall of masks. i have been thinking of the mask as a kind of window. walter likes windows and there are plenty of the regular kind around the outer edge, separating the front from the back, the garden. so now walter can look out to the garden, or in-to himself.
doodles for masks were made earlier on and now i am ready to move forward. there is a new what if in my new notes, a project for later. in the meantime i have applied the first mask to the quilt, an adaptation of a monkey mask from bali. it is interesting how the face sort of evolves as you stitch, changing at every moment. a choice in each step along the way.
