Penelope by Tatiana Blass | Design Milk
Penelope is a recent installation from Tatiana Blass – the name for the exhibit is taken from Homer’s Odyssey. Penelope was Odysseus’ wife and she remained faithful for twenty years while he was away at war. To keep her suitors at bay, she kept herself busy for three years weaving a burial shroud for her father-in-law while secretly unweaving parts of it at night. She promised she would choose one when she was done but delayed it to remain faithful.

OSHIBE | Tomomi Sayuda
Oshibe, meaning stamen in Japanese, is a playful interactive music and lighting sculpture. It represents optimistic elements of life, for instance, plants, eggs, light and the moon.
My weaving final. Cotton. It’s from a really old draft of a Japanese twill I found on Handweaving.net
The images are of both sides.
Such an interesting little video
