The North Star
My first woven garments were photographed at the North Star House in Grass Valley.
The North Star house was designed by Julia Morgan in 1905. Julia Morgan was the first licensed female architect in California, and she was a civil engineer.

Superimposed onto the image are equations for stress and strain. When I was at the North Star house I thought of Julia, and her background in engineering. I wondered what her challenges were like as a first woman.
Superimposed onto the dress is a photograph of the North Star house as it was being built.
On my way to my North Star...

While I was up late editing photos, I listened to Tori Amos' new record 'Native Invader'. The song Bang resonated with me while I was working, and included below are some of the lyrics...
I saw your Star, so bright it blinded me, I had to shield my eyes...
Immigrants that's who we all are, cause we're all made of Stars...
