You've probably noticed that I like the way light shines through semi transparent material or paper. While working on my granddaughter's petticoat, it reminded me in a very small and very humble way of the art work of Do-Ho Suh. His fabric interiors are amazingly detailed, incredible creations of some of the spaces he has lived in. I've done a bit of sewing in my day, but was blown away when I first viewed these interiors. It is hard enough to sew with a pattern, but this? And with sheer fabric--difficult fabric to sew with! How did he do this? I was somewhat disappointed to know he had used the help of master seamstresses. I wanted to believe the impossible! But, however they're made--they are quite beautiful, I would love to see these in person--to walk inside those rooms!
