ONE OF A KIND had an interactive element so a new work was created by visitors during the days the show had been open. When people drifted in to browse during their weekend shopping trip, they were invited to put a scrap of fabric into a dye-bath prepared for that day and let it soak while they viewed the art. The amount of time they spent in the space determined the color of the cloth. A kind of natural dye punch-clock… leaving a record of the number of participants and how long they let the color sink in.
