Flying Carpet Project   was conducted in the spring and summer of 2011 in Spain. I appeared before two groups of children in remote villages of Catalonia and Andalusia with an invitation to participate in a performance workshop where I teach felt-  making   with local wool in exchange for   stories and visits to the “magical” places around the villages of the participants (so as to imbue the carpet with flying capabilities). The resulting pieces of felt were stitched together into carpets (  later exchanged between the two schools that hosted the project) by a group of senior women in the villages and ultimately presented in two exhibitions alongside ephemera from the performance workshops, “rolled series” made from local materials, and video documentation of the performance.     Photography: Rosana Camára, Pau Cata Marles, Colin Bloom
