BF+DA based business Weaving Hand is always up to something good. This time it’s an interactive installation by her side company Alberto Howorth Studio as a continuation of the dialogue set forth by Estudio Escobedo Soliz’s project “Weaving the Courtyard” at MoMA PS1.

Now the ropes are taking on a second life. The discarded ropes will be woven on a 6′ by 6.5′ wide loom and made into colorful rugs during a series of events called “Reweaving the Courtyard” which will take place throughout the month of September at the Ace Hotel in coordination with the first New York Textile Month.
