a quilt for —

The women on my father’s side have carried on a quilting tradition for generations. Currently my dad has a quilt in his possession that was passed down from his aunts in which their mother made for his father in his infancy. Quilts serve a multifaceted role — they are created for both functional use but also provide an entry point to memory and familial preservation.

In an effort to continue this generational practice while considering these overarching questions, this “quilt” was created as a commemorative “thank you” to the matriarchs of both the Pulley and Wade families. Each square is made of laminated plastic bags and features the embroidered name of a woman. The piece functions as an AR immersion which reveals images of the women listed with use of an IOS device.
