A few years ago, Linnie Brown participated in a class with a visiting artist. Rather than using traditional pattern shapes for one of their clothing projects, the instructor had students work with templates she had derived from specific physical sites. The resulting objects, unique and barely functional, differed substantially from normal articles of clothing. For Brown, this working process also came to signify to her how individuals are shaped by specific locations and their experiences in them. Revisiting this idea, Brown created this exhibition to explore the complexity and influence of location. In creating her work Brown realized that, "we really are an accumulation of our past. All of the experiences we have had in our homes, schools, and other places uniquely merge together to influence the way we currently view and engage in life."
