Flown is a photograph of a nest found abandoned on my porch. The image was divided and each section was fused digitally with a different photograph of my hand painted cloth. Printed onto ink jet pre-treated natural textiles, and mounted on stiff interfacing. Segments are creatively stitched and hand-tied using dyed pearl cotton.
