The work in "Altered" is created in collaboration with Indian Rafoogars (darners) and was inspired by artist Priya Ravish Mehra. Priya invited me to respond to the idea of creating through Rafoo (darning) many years ago in her studio. She has worked with Rafoogars in her project “Making the Invisible Visible” for over ten years now. I used my work “Landscape Observed” as a starting place, experimenting with the implications of mending and recreating wholeness that darning carries.
