Craft Power: Tusheti Rugs is a series of flax handmade paper laminated el wires, which illuminate when plugged in. As part of a collaborative research project with artist Paul Catanese entitled Handmade Media, we explored the intersection of hand crafted media with handmade paper.

These works were my output from the collaboration, inspired by the crafts symbol system in the Republic of Georgia, where it is believed that some of the images are derived from ancient Amazonian cults celebrating female power. They were featured in the San Antonio city-wide exhibition, Luminaria.
