or, computers from the perspective of a fiber artist! Our theme was 'Architecture', but I knew from the outset that I wanted to do something other than a building. When I stumbled on a definition of architecture that included information technology, I knew I had my inspiration. My son suggested I google 'gaming computers' to find an inspiration photo, and I found several that I thought would lend themselves to interpretation in fabric. Here's my inspiration. . .
and here's my finished piece.
I embellished with actual computer parts I got from my brother, who had built computers. I liked what the text fabric added- to me, that represented communication- and computers have become a huge part of communication just in my lifetime. I quilted it all over with a straight line kind of stipple, which was a challenge to keep the scale somewhat consistent. And, I did a skinny (1/8") binding, something I've wanted to try for awhile.
It was a fun one to do- I think I will mount this one on painted canvas. Who knows, maybe one of the techies in my family will end up with it.
