Photos by Octavio Martinez

These photos were all taken by Octavio Martinez on Sunday, April 23rd.  Getting this installation up at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles was a project.  Octavio managed to capture this piece in such a beautiful light… I could have never expected randomly showing him the installation would lead to such compelling photos.  Please check out his work at http://www.tiburon1431.com/

Special thanks to Anna at the San Jose Quilt and Textile Museum for making this connection happen.  There is such a vibrant artist community in San Jose.  I’m really happy to be working there for these three months.

Octavio took a bunch of photos.  Here are my three favorites.
