I like this moment,
cutting the warp.
Just then I can unwrap the scarf from my loom
and see it completely.
Up till now it always were pleasant surprises...
Also this one :-)

Strange story, beautiful colors...
Photographs by David Maisel of the cremated remains of mental patients, stored in copper canisters on pine shelves.
“Over time . . . the canisters have begun to react chemically with the human ashes held inside them; this has thus created mold-like mineral outgrowths on the exterior surfaces of these otherwise gleaming cylinders.”
“. . . each canister holds a corpse – reduced to dust, certainly, burnt to handfuls of ash, sharing that cindered condition with much of the star-bleached universe, but still cadaverous, still human. What strange chemistries we see emerging here between man and metal. Because these were people; they had identities and family histories, long before they became nameless patients, encased in metal, catalytic.”
“Dust is a peculiar substance. Less a material in its own right, with its own characteristics or color, dust is a condition. It is the “result of the divisibility of matter,” Joseph Amato writes in his book Dust: A History of the Small and the Invisible. Dust is a potpourri of ingredients, varied to the point of indefinability.”

The shorts consist of the movement of six circles
(each with a different color of the rainbow)
that are formed by and split up into various geometric patterns.
