In Aligned the decorative border of cypress trees in the found fabric is interrupted, realigned and joined again through darning, creating a new fluid whole. Through this new alignment the cypress trees take on varying shapes, and draw attention to their presence outside of a repeat pattern. The Aligned series is the Altered series sister. They both come from the same piece of found cloth. The black printed fabric Aligned was a border to a canopy that most likely guarded an object of sacred importance.
