Nebraska represents family to me, the weaving together of many cultures, ethnicities and backgrounds creating one clan.
Material and Construction
Created with colored popcycle sticks, each stick represents a group or family. The pattern, Bargello, is a needlework stitch producing a zigzag pattern which mimics the electrocardiograph display of a heartbeat. The multiple repetitive rows of this pattern show the working together of all Nebraska, no discernable locations, again all is one, with the heart appearing from the center.
