A Vehicle for Something Else Brooklyn, NY

This project was a collection of fabrics woven and knit from former textiles that had been tossed away, salvaged, cut up, and then re-woven. They are tapestries that resemble blueprints for motor vehicles. These works were operated in public parks and gathering spaces around Brooklyn, New York, by Emily Holtzman and Malaika Temba. The central image is drawn from a self-help parenting book that was popular in the 1990’s within which mothers were advised to have difficult conversations with their daughters behind the wheels of a car. What are the vehicles needed in application today, to speak about issues such as textile waste and align our systems of communication to convey both the local and global urgencies of these issues?
