Meditation
“This piece is made from mulberry paper and pulled raw silk. It is a reflection on a silenced voice and the fragility of life and on the metamorphosis of the mulberry leaf into the mile of silk thread. The material consists of silk and mulberry paper. I softened the silk cocoon (Bombyx mori that I raised for several summers in North Carolina) in simmering water and pulled it out into long shiny strings. It remains stiff when dry, and the strings can be attached to the paper.”
