Corn husk fiber (Zea mays L. saccharata), roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa), and cotton interlining fabric

Twisting

Inspired by the colours and stratigraphic layers of the (e)arth, about the journey of children of the (e)arth in a continuous cycle of dyeing and dying. It is said that the deeper the layer of the (e)arth is, the more ancient the artifacts are. The white cotton fabric was tabula rasa, then onto it was added the corn husk fiber. twisted and shaped into fingerprint-like lines, just like the ones we have on our fingertips—just like the trace we left as children of the (e)arth on the face of this planet. Rowdy and imperfect, but it is okay—it is more than enough.
