Most of us are too impatient to let ideas evolve overtime without overwatering them. Christie Wright of Brooklyn, NY, embraces the idea of storytelling as a strategy for designing. “Building by Leaving,” one of her latest creative endeavours, embraces the idea of growth through location and experience. Sewing rungs together from various fabric swatches, her ladder grows over time, accumulating new colors, shapes, and patterns. In an effort to understand growth, escapism and personal history, Wright’s creation is reminicient of a modern day Rapunzel.
