Bison wool, cattail fluff, hair of the artist, wood, locally sourced clay fired by Carolina Araneda.

I put myself into the shoes of a woman who lives in the sod house as I made yarn from materials that I gathered, prepared, and spun on site at FortWhyte Alive in Winnipeg, Manitoba. A spinneret is the name of the silk-spinning organ on a spider, a function that I embodied as my freezing fingers partook in the ancient, mythical and transformational art of drop-spindle spinning. Using the yarn that I made in the sod hut, I then wove a web onto the outside of the sod house, leaving it to the mercy of the elements.
