* Redirecting the Ordinary
"Redirecting the Ordinary" is about turning things around, upside down, inside out, backwards, or how even just a minuscule course correction can charge up the humdrum, turn the common into the uncommon, and make the expected unexpected.
We live in an environment we take for granted. We often miss the essential and forget that we can make the routine so much more vibrant and interesting. These selected artists have interpreted the object or phenomenon in cloth to bring attention and significance to the ordinary.
