serendipity- pleasant surprise, discovering unexpected things

throwing the dice to determine the width and length (centimetres) of cut outs, sewing the pieces together to create fabric structure shaped by serendipity and play

Wenn meinen Worten die Silben ausfallen vor Müdigkeit
und auf der Schreibmaschine die dummen Fehler beginnen
wenn ich einschlafen will
und nicht mehr wachen zur täglichen Trauer
um das was geschieht in der Welt
und was ich nicht verhindern kann
beginnt da und dort ein Wort sich zu putzen und leise zu summen
und ein halber Gedanke kämmt sich und sucht einen anderen
der vielleicht eben noch an etwas gewürgt hat
was er nicht schlucken konnte
doch jetzt sich umsieht
und den halben Gedanken an der Hand nimmt und sagt zu ihm:
Erich Fried

Carpets made by moroccan Nomads, who carry their stories and myths with them in form of textiles. They are called Boucherouite or Boucherwi, made by most Berber families. This craft is an art relying on instinct and experience rather than pre-determined design.
-carrying memories- 
Because there is a shortage of cloth in the area, the material used is old clothing, often garments that have a special meaning attached, an emotional value, -a blouse of a lost member, a child's first dress, a lucky cloak that shielded a traveler from the cold at night. These objects are transformed into a piece of furnishing that becomes part of a family's everyday living for a long period of time, to be carried around on their travels.
