Open Sky is a large scale, shape shifting sculpture built entirely from repurposed or donated cloth. It is currently in progress. When completed, it will offer a celebratory, otherworldly atmosphere where people from any background can enter and find themselves in close proximity to one another. Open Sky’s design is constructed similar to the way wire is bent to make an egg basket, as quilted strips are folded and pinched to make pliant walls with diamond shaped holes.  This makes Open Sky a place to gather under as well as a place to see outwards.  Several sections are patch worked in the strip quilt tradition. This is to note a meld of differences, further pushed by the cities and countries the cloth is donated or sourced from.  As Open Sky widens, my hope is the form will help celebrate difference, commemorate individuals, and mourn those that are gone.
