As a child I loved to draw with spirograph. The precision of the line making and the magic of the pattern developing as I neared the end of the design fascinated me. The threads on the inside of Spirograph It mirror the mathematical formation of patterns created when drawing with the plastic disks and are a tribute to my play time as a child. Spirograph It is woven from the discarded plastic strips off drywall and is embellished with yarn and thread.
