Interpretive Assembly 

Interpretive Assembly is a participatory project that works with the form of the sewing circle as a means to investigate the relationship between body, clothing and labor. To shape and be shaped by.

The sewing circle, understood as a choreography of clothing production, invites participants both with and without a background in sewing to prepare and sew garments collectively. Each garment is periodically passed around the circle, changing hands and subject to interpretation, until it returns to its owner as a finished product.

This work has been presented in homes, gardens and galleries throughout Vancouver and Berlin.
