different kind of quilt

While it won’t appeal to everyone, I thought I’d share this interesting weaving and ‘quilt’ project.  The link goes to the Kickstarter site, where the artists are looking for funding to complete the project.  I’m not advocating for a donation (I don’t know the artists), but if you’re unaware of  Kickstarter, you may want to give that a look too.  The project is called 50 Different Minds.  It draws on the history of weaving, going back to the Jacquard loom, through the Albers’s, and lands potently in our own moment of information overload.  It’s debuting in its initial form at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, through October 31, 2010.
