  • This project of cutting up denim jeans and sewing them together is eventually going to become unwieldy. I’m trying to figure out how to make that more manageable.
  • I realize in this project I like to have some specific parameters but not too specific an idea of what it’s going to look like at the end. I’m open to possibilities of being something else that I originally imagine.
  • But why work the whole thing at one time? Why not create a bunch of units the same size and then assemble them? Perhaps that be would that be too orderly?
  • I am interested in having people move their position when viewing an object. Or at least I am interested in taking different positions when I look at objects, i.e.: lying on the floor and looking upward. That means I need to create something for the floor and the ceiling. I always appreciated going to the dentist, etc. and looking at images or mobiles up above. I love the ceiling at Johansson Projects.
