Into the Deep Forest

into the deep forest s

Light is cast into the deep forest,
and shines again on green moss.

–Wang Wei  (from “Deer Enclosure“)

It’s National Design Week at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, and one of the honorees this year is textile artist Jack Lenor Larsen.  This grid is inspired by one of his weavings.  It reminded me of the light in a forest, and Wang Wei’s poem reflects that feeling beautifully.

    Hi Kerfe, You have placed the light perfectly, I like how you’ve used the brown bag paper, which resembles bark. Beautifully conceived.
