The materials Morris incorporates into her pieces range from rarefied filament imported from Japan to scavenged marine rope, foil, and recording tape. She also spins plastic bags into yarn, shibori-prints yardage, and generates surface design with mathematical software.
In addition to her adventures in fiber, Morris performs with a gamelan orchestra, is an accomplished cook, and teaches herself foreign languages.
MANA is the new home of the Richard Meier Model Museum. Meier has designed the MANA Exposition opening Saturday May 10. There will be shuttle buses to and from Manhattan.
Drop in on Debie Morris if you are visiting MANA this weekend.
