Trending Threads compares and contrasts the immediacy and impulsiveness of a tweet to the thoughtful interactions with one another. Show attendees will be able to move 4”x 4” character blocks around on a modular, handcrafted board in order to spell out their own giant fiber tweet. They will be encouraged to snap a photo and post it to social media with #trendingthreads. As the first and only resident fiber artist of the Abington Art Center, it took Teresa over a year to hand embroider each letter and character, a strong contrast to the fast-paced world of tweeting.
