Blanket (Product)

283.80

62% cotton, 38% wool; 100% cotton trim

50" wide x 70" long, approximate

designed in collaboration with Bethanne Knudson, woven at The Oriole Mill, and finished at Sew Co

Designed, woven, cut and sewn in Hendersonville, NC

 

This Jacquard-woven textile was created for the instillation What is it Worth? during the exhibition Made in WNC at the Center for Craft Creativity and Design in September 2015. 

These blankets represent a microcosm of an industrially produced textile. The repetitive nature of their construction processes are endless, but their individual life stories are unique. As performers, they have been compelled to more ambitious and inefficient tasks than the average blanket, exposing them to deeper imbedded meaning. 

Each stage of their manufacturing process – weaving, cutting, sewing, finishing, and fulfillment – was choreographed and filmed, entitled Blanket (Process), in an effort to view industrial production through a poetic perspective.

The blanket's price was determined by surveying the viewers.
