12 Cycles shows the breadth and depth of a complex collaboration between 12 fiber artists over the course of eighteen months and thousands of miles.
The round-robin fiber-arts project involved circulating and responding to a growing collection of visual ideas that arrived without verbal or written commentary or explanation. Each artist developed a new idea to add to the group based only on what was sent to them, and without knowing what the final collection would be.
