In Aligned, a decorative border of cypress trees is interrupted, realigned, and joined again through darning. The process creates a new, fluid whole. Through this new alignment, the cypress trees take on varying shapes, drawing attention to their presence outside of the repeating pattern. The Aligned series is the sister series to Altered, having been created from the same piece of found cloth. The black printed fabric in Aligned was the border to a canopy that most likely guarded an important, sacred object.
