Image Statement: This piece was inspired by a trip to Morocco, and my interpretation with their concept of "bare requirements" necessary to build community. The necessary five are community: fountain, oven, bath, madressa (school), and mosque. Using Bojagi renders finished seams on both back and front. These seams, with the shadows that they cast, blend into a kind of network. When the piece sways in a breeze the quivering roadmap pattern felt appropriate to convey a sense of shifting possibilities when visiting a city for the first time.
