The Notebooks: New work in progress
2017 - ongoing

The tapestries distill 43 years of dreams and daily scribbling in 115 notebooks. Bornstein is combing through four decades of dreams that offer poetic statements that aren’t based in dominant narratives. As both subject and object Bornstein is literally weaving together the threads of her dreams and stories. All the themes in her notebooks will be distilled in her word weavings, including infinite stories of those around her. 

Tapestries, wool and linen: 14 pieces, largest, 9 x 18 inches.
