A Memory Shawl titled, “Picking Oranges with Lolo”
Presented at SAIC’s Spring BFA Exhibition
This piece was comprised in a total of 3 of the longest weeks of my life. It is all hand knit and was later infused with the scent of oranges to enhance the effect of memory. The shawl is meant to serve as a physical recording of an even, and story of picking oranges with my grandfather in California. The short moment kept me going, and looking ahead to my big move from Chicago to California.
