Item # 157328.
By Taiji Terasaki.
In March 2020, as stay at home orders were imposed on much of the United States and the world, the artist Taiji Terasaki responded to the pandemic by undertaking a meditative art-making process. Socially distanced in his studio, and seeking to find light in positive stories, he set out to create one work every day for 100 days and post an image of it on Instagram.
The woven paper works he made during the lockdown were a physical response to the uncertainties and anxieties of the pandemic, and the daily events he could bear witness to online. They became material expressions of compassion and sorrow, and an effort to spread messages of hope.
