I am thrilled to have artist Michelle Vitale Loughlin exhibiting one of her woolpunk installations in the upcoming exhibit, (Re)Fashioning Fiber at Green Spaces NY.

Michelle's subversive use of fiber craft interventions really typifies the spirit of wool punk attitudes and the layered urban environment. As the artist highlights on her website: "Let threads be articulate, and find a form for themselves to no other end than their own orchestration, not to be sat on, walked on, only to be looked at." (Anni Albers)

Word on the street: Michelle's Towers (pictured above) may just take on a sound dimension for (Re)Fashioning Fiber via a collaboration with sound artist, Matt Pass. The two recently collaborated on 'Water Falls' and 'Hydrolace' at Greylock Arts in Adams, Massachusetts.
