Artist Village, Old Redford, Detroit. (2019)
Stitch City serves as a community design hub and incubator where the City of Detroit municipalities can directly engage with folks from the community, and where pop-ups can test their products and build clientele. Reclaimed billboard tarp is cut into strips, which are woven into colorful tapestries, and flip-tables serve as both table and display. Because of the tight space constraints, the space needed to be flexible enough to serve multiple functions. It is used as workshops, community gathering spaces, pop-ups, and gallery space. The brighter colors of tarp are near the exterior storefront, while the darker colors clad the area further back from the entry. The screens are moveable on curtain track. The Detroit Design 139 exhibit used this space as one of their satellite exhibits.
