The North Star
This September I photographed my first garments made from my first pieces of cloth woven on my loom.
I was able to photograph the pieces at the North Star House in Grass Valley. The North Star house was designed by Julia Morgan in 1905.
Julia Morgan was a civil engineer and the first licensed female architect in California.

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, and 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...

One night when I was up late editing photos, I was listening to Tori Amos' new record 'Native Invader'. The song Bang resonated with me while I was working, so I included 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...
