Cyber Fyber Exhibition

Yet another project I couldn't resist to participate in ;-) : Susan Lenz's Cyber Fyber Exchange.
Noch ein Project, bei dem ich nicht widerstehen konnte mitzumachen ;-) Susan Lenz's Cyber Fyber Exchange.

I copied the following explanation from her blog :

"CYBER FYBER is an exhibition of international fiber art scheduled for January 8th through 20th, 2009 at Gallery 80808/Vista Studios, 808 Lady Street in downtown Columbia, South Carolina, USA. The brainchild of Susan Lenz, this exhibit will focus on the supportive, global community of fiber artists with whom Susan regularly shares new techniques, contemporary approaches to textiles, and finished work by Internet websites and blogs. The exhibition will include three primary areas: Fiber ATCs (Artist Trading Cards); fiber postcards; and the work of several invited artists. The exhibition will also include FIBER DAY and ATC trading day. From the beginning, Susan Lenz is documenting CYBER FYBER on a blog/journal. "

I sent her one of my Scout ATCs that I made a year ago to mark the centenary of scouting, in remembrance of Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the international scouting movement.
Ich hab ihr eine meiner Pfadfinder ATCs geschickt, die ich vor einem Jahr aus Anlass des 100jährigen Pfadfinder-Jubiläums gemacht habe, in Erinnerung an Sir Robert Baden-Powell, den Gründer der internationalen Pfadfinderbewegung.
Here is the ATC I got in return. Hier ist die ATC, die ich im Austausch bekam.
"This ATC was made after cutting up an older piece of work. That work was made as the centerpiece for my first solo exhibition. It was based on architectural elements found in Gothic and Romanesque churches. The piece was created using chiffons on a heat transfer painted base. It was free motion embroidered."

The photo on top of this post shows the original piece.
Imagine - she cut this wonderful piece of art into postcards and ATCs!!!
Das Foto ganz oben in diesem Beitrag zeigt das Originalkunstwerk, das Susan zerschnitten hat, um ATCs und Postkarten für den Tausch daraus zu machen. Unglaublich, oder?
I am also trading a fiber postcard with Susan. This is the one that I will get and below is the one that I have made for the trade.
Ich tausche auch eine Postkarte mit Susan. Diese hier bekomme ich im Tausch gegen die unter abgebildete, die ich für dieses Projekt gemacht habe.

I love the Scout ATC. How very detailed! My significant one was very involved in Boy Scouts, both himself as a child and then as a leader when his kids got old enough to participate. It's nice to see you honor them!
