    Who could have imagined that the pattern dresses which are alive to begin with might take on such a temporal soaring when rendered with the moving light and color projections? Opposites merge and complement the spaces between materiality and experience: strength and fragility, past and future, stillness and movement. It seems important that one is invited to indulge becoming lost in one’s plural points of view. Soothing and invigorating. Crucial dislocation of memory forming novel notations of the subject lost herself to memory. Thank you!

      And the felt patience and inspiration behind the conceptualizing and its careful execution mirror the life of the materials themselves, materials waiting dreamlike to be expended and re-organized and thus re-brought into existence.

    How wonderful to see these patterns and how you made them come to life once again. I can visualize my sister’s talented hands as she utilized these patterns in creating beautiful couture… and now you have brought back the memory they hold. Thank you!

    You have honored Mary Ann in such a special and beautiful way, one she would truly love and appreciate! You both are so talented and I know as two women artists with such abilities you would have become good friends and would have greatly enjoyed sharing your thoughts and talents with one another. To those of us who know and love Mary Ann, thank you for your beautiful message, full of such love and bringing back such wonderful memories for each of us. I hope I can meet you and see your work in person when I am next in New York.

    Pattern is a fascinating display. The dresses alone are unique, and very interesting creations. The addition of lighting adds a wonderful dimension which has me curious as to how this was done in such a controlled manner. Mary Ann, a very creative and talented lady, would surely love your artistry and very much appreciate the use of her patterns in the creation of this piece. I wish that I had had the chance to see the display in person.
