Still Together Apart

Log Cabin Type

This work is an exploration of log cabin quilt patterns and typography. Within each piece, I consider three possible origins for the pattern:

Egyptian cat mummy wrappings
Scottish run-rig farming practices
Scandinavian log cabin bath houses

I ultimately want to create space for new visual, conceptual, and poetic possibilities of the pattern, while looking back to its mysterious origins.

Design Inquiry, Vinalhaven
Collaboration with Nida Abdullah


At a creative residency in the Summer of 2018 in Vinalhaven, Maine, 15 cross-disciplinary makers were asked to participate in the creative misuse of Google Sheets over the course of one week. These works were inspired by Sol Lewitt’s instruction drawings, where makers responded to a set of context-specific prompts to collaboratively create visualizations, exploring alternative approaches both in a physical installation and within the digital platform. We explored the social aspect of making together, and how context informs process.
