DescriptionI am interested in color association by ideology. My interests began as a 3rd grader trying to understand the electoral college. I colored states according to voting data reported on the night of the 2004 election. I am inspired by patterns found in political data and political landscapes which shape our communities. I explore my interests through traditions commonly associated through female craft. I am from Pennsylvania Dutch descent. My lineage is rich through a mother’s practice of sewing. I connect my queer identity with my materials as I continue my family tradition of quilting. By relating quilting patterns and voting data, I recreate visual representations of ideologies and Americana intimacy.
