I know, I know. I've been away for too long. Juggling projects means that sometimes corsets have to wait a bit. Boo. Although I have no new corset update I thought I'd share one of the other things I've been working on.
That's me. It reads as plain old black and white, but this self portrait is woven with silver wire and black cotton. It's impossible to capture how the image shimmers and disappears as you view the portrait from different angles. But if you are in the San Jose area between August and October you can see it in person because I just found out this portrait was accepted for the International TECHstyle Biennial. Yea.
I have to clear a few other projects from my work table then I'll get back to the 1844 corset. And the others waiting to be finished.
