Weaving Memories

Rice straws, bamboo sticks, 50*125cm, 10.2019

Under the influence of consuming economy, some craft skills have been gradually disappearing. About 2 decades ago, most of the villagers knew the craft skill, weaving straw shoes. However, nowadays, it’s rare to see the scene that some troops of people produce straw shoes in the land. 

I braid a scarf with a rice straw rope which is hand-rolled by myself, showing what the rural life was before, for reminding people’s awareness about the fast pace of current life.
