This installation was completed in Italy after six years of pulling red velvet threads from a cloth hung on nails to suggest the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The removed threads were either stitched into a pure linen cloth writing various words or wrapped around thorn limbs that were tied together. Documentation of the thread shredding gesture was created from shadows and thoughts were recorded in a journal. Finally the velvet residue was flocked on to three tree limbs and touched with gold then added to an indigenous piece of wood from where my grandmother was born.
