mexican pillows, bolivian textile

I’m grateful for this textile-specific photograph because it gives me an excuse to share my enthusiasm for the larger story behind it, this weekend’s New York Times article (and must-see video) on Doug Aitken’s Venice California home. It’s one big, meditative art installation. And yes, textiles do play a small part. On a larger note, I’m continually fascinated by the role traditional / non-western textiles play in contemporary spaces — as previous posts on the Miller House, Handcrafted Modern and Knoll CBS attest.
