Not-a-Blog January 2010

Released: 2010
Format: Mixed Media
Genre: Not-A-Blog

Not-a-Blogs are an ongoing project in which RSK makes and mails art to a rotating list of people around the world. These pieces are meant to share her experiences and encourage human connection without the use of technology. Each Not-a-Blog in the January 2010 series contains a page from a religious text depicting a Hindu god which is sewn into a scrap of embroidered material, which is in turn sewn into an envelope made of paper table napkins. Each of the elements – the Hindu texts, the embroidery, the napkins – even the kite string with which many were bound – were produced in India. The beauty of the images and embroidery are juxtaposed with the crudeness of the artist’s stitching.
