DESCRIPTION

At once familiar, deceiving, exaggerated, and bizarre, Stitch Thought is a domestic environment made of felt. This soft installation, sewn by Albuquerque-based Tamara Wilson, features 100 light bulbs, a couch, and other living room furnishings. These everyday objects suggest comfort and warmth but, as soft sculpture they are rendered extraordinarily useless.
