Drunkard’s Path, 2004


Inspired by the Drunkard’s Path pattern, a name quilt-makers call the symmetrical arrangement of the quarter-circle-in-a-square.

Patchwork is similar to the nature of the imagery that the media throws at us every day like news as scraps of leftover images.

Covering and uncovering parts of an image with the quarter circle pattern became a metaphor for what we know about reality and what is kept from us.
