Silverberg, Robbin Ami: text-iles / She can dig a lake with a needle
text-iles consists of a series of 11 industrial textile bobbins, each with a hanging translucent paper scarf, printed with a proverb about women’s work. The texts were manipulated to create textile-weaving patterns on the paper.
I had found, over the course of reading and research, countless examples of proverbs from around the world that encapsulated those cultures’ perspectives on the role of women and their labors.
