ALL THINGS WILL SOFTEN

3 yards of cloth was woven with hand-dyed cotton/linen yarn. The yarn was resist dyed with natural dyes to create a gridded ikat pattern in the cloth. The dye was not set with a mordant, so that when placed in water, the grid pattern would wash out. The cloth was brought to the Leslie Spit, placed halfway on the shore and halfway submerged in water. Over time, the grid was softened and blurred by the water. This piece celebrates disintegration, erosion, and softening as a means of transition out of the Anthropocene.
