Now-a-days everybody is documenting their lives via a smart phone. It’s easy to take a photo on instagram or disseminate a thought by way of twitter.

I remember when it was a really big deal for my mother to get out the movie camera to document an important event in our lives. I went to great lengths to transfer this movie of my 8th birthday from film to utube. It wasn’t easy and very time consuming.

When my granddaughter was born and lived in Pittsburgh, I would document our time together on a blog. Since she moved to Michigan, I’ve taken to making these little montage movies of our time together using the camera on my iphone and the program imovie.

I wonder how she will document her granddaughter’s memories when she is a Bubbe?

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
