This detail shows one story added to the quilts.
For the exhibition Down Through the Needle's Eye, Hannah Brancato and Charlotte Keniston created a space for a clothing swap, fostering interaction and a consciousness about consumption. Stained or otherwise un-wearable garments were cut up and stitched together by the artists to create quilts in the gallery during workshop days throughout the exhibition. When people submitted garments for the quilt they wrote a few sentences about the garment's history- where did it come from? When did you wear it? How long did you have it? Pockets throughout the quilts hold transcriptions of these stories.
