I am showing my eight morse code weavings, The Chorus, as part of the Archipelago exhibit at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art.

Each weaving contains its own message, phrases our endangered species could be silently screaming as they go extinct.

The Chorus provides a way of processing possible futures. By translating morse code from sound to visual representation it allows us to see what we cannot hear.
