OF FIBRE AND LIFE...
Bits and pieces of cloth sewn or glued together curtain the world.
Bits and pieces of knowledge skillfully intertwined make up the study of history.
Every civilization has this tradition of squirreling away precious fragments untill they are needed to create a whole.
Works of art,especially in the 20th century are often nothing more than ordered fragmentations-
with each fragment carrying it's own cultural load.
