This piece goes along with one of the first pieces I posted. This one displays the individual elements that make up fabric; seemingly insignificant snippets of string that are the basic foundation for cloth. The warps and wefts are the same ones that were removed systematically from the first piece, and also the same number.

This book is made out of leather, silk tissue, and linen. The idea was that each "warp" and "weft" are measured and placed an equal distance away from the previous, each on a separate piece of tissue paper. If the pages were perfectly clear, the lines of thread would appear to be woven. When held up to light you can begin to see the "cloth".
