3-for-Tuesday - What If?

I stumbled across What If? (exploring relationship with cloth) a while ago and didn't have much time to look at it, so I made a note about it, which I promptly lost. My "office" (aka the overflowing binder next to the computer) has been seriously out of order for weeks, and when I finally gave it some attention and organized it, I found all manner of little notes I'd left myself about all sorts of things. It was like getting a bunch of tiny presents.

I am so happy that I didn't lose What If? in my mental shuffle. Jude Hill is doing some really interesting work with cloth. There are so many things I love about this blog and this work. The spirit of experimentation, the journaling aspect,  and the scientific/documentary approach all speak strongly to me. In the studio, especially in the dye studio, I like to work very methodically and scientifically, and I'm fanatical about documenting my results. So it makes sense that the voyeur in me loves watching someone else work this way too.

I especially love the entries with notes.

I'm feeling very inspired. So many ideas flying around my head.

If you work with fiber, you should take a look at What If?. You can even start at the beginning to read all the entries in chronological order.
