I am focused on one corner of this piece... a place where tradition has collided with some outside force. A newness. It is a meeting place that helps define both parts in terms of change, redefinition. I think about this a lot. How things seem to collide yet actually move though one another. Occupying the same space. It has occurred to me lately that redefinition might be a lot less about identifying difference and a lot more about recognizing and absorbing the consciousness of oneness.
This post follows the making of a special story cloth. You can read more about the Magic Feather Project by clicking the tab in the top menu bar. Or by using the category for HOME , the link to the making of this cloth, in the sidebar or under the post.
There is truly significance for me, for this project, in the bringing of all these pieces together. The challenge of making one piece, one peace, from the diversity in approach, highlighting the One-ness in intention. And so blending is my focus. But still honoring the individual creativity of the maker.
This video was made during Spirit Cloth Diaries, when I was planning the wings and the blending process....
There is such a journey ahead of me still. UN-stitching the edges, reweaving them into a web with a bit of my own techniques touching them all. And another layer of feathers to add in between things. Weaving them in as well I think, where I can. There are still so many feathers here.
I once imagined, that all these little feathers, might fly in and touch one another in some special way, with my help. And through some sort of sympathetic evolution, would transform into some new vision that might change the way we see one another. Create a new sense of Home for those among us that need shelter from the storm.
I am sorry that many folks are having problems commenting. It is a Typepad issue and I cannot fix it. Maybe just an opportunity for some quiet time :-)
