(Of) (For) The Desert(ed)

(Of) (For) The Desert(ed) is a work I made last year for a textiles elective.
It is dedicated to those 
who continue to wander and wonder.
Drawing on dust, dirt and rust,
roadside motels,
Zabriskie Point and R.H.C.P's Californication,
my dream of a cross-the-heartlands-of-America roadtrip , 
and above all
the desert, and the deserted.

Made from rust, onion, black tea, coffee, rosehip tea, eucalyptus and berry dyed silk and cotton, with hand and machine stitch, 
and jute twine.
