Synapses is built from synthetic fabrics I tied several hundred pie weights and other smallish but durable items into. I then colored the fabric via a dye sublimation technique which I altered by boiling the fabric rather than steaming it. I cut the fabrics apart, arranged them on a hand dyed ground and stitched and embroidered the elements into place. I wasn't happy with that dark green ground fabric so I cut away most of it leaving just the dimensional form. What do do??? I pulled out a roll of garden netting and 6 layers later, voila! Once the sleeve was in place the piece was finished. Kind of looks like the creepy, crawly things you might find on that garden netting if it were outside.
