I'm honored to be included in this group show and the opportunity to launch Found Bound and Rebound at my favorite art space in Queens. Right in our own backyard too! Found Bound Rebound started last year at FABNYC where I hosted a repurposing workshop. Several Theatre workshops in the Lower East Side were donating costumes and scrap fabrics. We invited participants to donate and bind the shoes with the donated fabrics. At some point during the exhibition. The shoes will come down, boxed and shipped to Manila for the culmination of the project at a show presented by The Drawing Room Contemporary. The shoes will be unbound and donated to the Haiyan Typhoon Victims. UHSM Batch 76 hosted a similar workshop for FBR Manila ed. during their Grand Reunion last Feb. Thank you Olive and Ruby.
