Description

Free Your Mind, a public social justice art endeavor, aims to gather and showcase personal narratives of microaggressions, offering a cathartic release. Participants inscribe their experiences onto ribbons, which are then tied to a net, symbolizing liberation. The evolving installation creates a public record for discussion. Theda Sandiford, an acclaimed fiber and installation artist, draws inspiration from racial trauma.

Melding various fibers and found materials, she employs free-form weaving, coiling, knotting, and jewelry making techniques. Her meticulously gathered materials, along with community contributions, serve as a testament to collective memory, transforming into โ€œsocial fabricโ€ that intertwines contemporary issues and personal narratives, fostering a rich tapestry of interconnected stories.
