Red Thread

At the beginning of the school year I traced the word ‘Desire’ on my studio wall in red thread and pins. It felt important at the time. But now it’s time to take it off.

As I pulled out the pins the thread made these wonderful crazy lines unravelling across the surface.

I couldn’t resist keeping the mass of sharp angled thread, so unlike the usual soft round curves of thread off a spool. I hung it on a pin that was holding something else on the wall and later on the sun came in and showed me it anew. I like the shadows as much or even more than the thread.
