Support and Resistance (triptych)
2014
10 x 19.5 in (each panel)

Repurposed cotton fabric and polyester batting; polyester thread.

This tryptych is from my “(ch)art quilt” series of art quilts that incorporate data into art objects. It plots U.S. government bond price data within ranges bounded by Fibonacci ratios (data from Chicago Mercantile Exchange). The three sections of different color represent the passage of time as well as differing human interpretations of data. The raw edges reinforce the open-ended nature of the data.
