Title: Woven Futures, Woven Histories, 2065

Year: 2065

The image from 2065, shows our interconnected lives weaving the future. In 1965 immigrants came to this country and began a life filled with interconnection and hope, and this image reflects the strength, resilience, beauty, and activism of the generations that came after. As one looks at both pieces together they can flip, each referring to the other.

Unifying a thread of past and future.

The fabric of our society, made up of these beautiful communities, as seeds planted by those who came before, growing wildly with freedom.

Barbata was invited to TIMEPieces by Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya. Their work is inspired by the year 1965.
