A large scale exhibition of my work is scheduled for Sept 2010 at MACLA, Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latinoamericana, in San Jose during the Zero1 Biennial. MACLA has allowed me to use the exhibition to showcase (and kickstart) collaborative works with artisans—and for the first time in my art career, allow me to become a catalyst for social change through the creation of craft. The Chiapas Project, shown below, will serve as Phase 1 of a longer-planned relationship with artisans worldwide, helping to provide dignified wages and setting up new modes of sustaining traditions—the creation of Artists Helping Artisans (AHA!).
For more information on the Chiapas Project and the creation of AHA! please see bottom "Project Info" section.

Clases with Rosa 2
Here is a little video of Rosa preparing twigs to make our warp tie-up sticks.
We are having some issues with our internet connection, but will be posting videos of the full process of backstrap weaving as soon as we are able to upload them!
