My Favorite Grandmother




My Favorite Grandmother is an ongoing project.  


Part one is a medium through which anyone can share stories about or told by grandparents. I engage with passersby teaching them to knit while listening to their stories. This moving collection of narratives and anecdotes can be found on the My Favorite Grandmother blog, a forum to visit, read, comment, and connect through storytelling. 

Your Story is welcomed and appreciated. Please contact me with your submission.

Part two is my related performance; I’ll Draw a Line, inspired in part by my grandmother’s stories of wartime recession when women drew lines down the backs of their legs to imitate the stockings they could not afford. 

Tangentially related is Knitting, a video collaboration with three fellow residents during my residency at Art Omi and the Knitting Project an ongoing participatory performance.
