Word, Thread and The Magnolia

January 25, 2024 — December 7, 2024

Check out our first installation in the East Flushing Gallery, also known as the all gender restroom on the right in the Ulrich Museum lobby. Created in 2023 by LabSynthE, Word, Thread and The Magnolia is constructed of vinyl, markers and prompts, leaves and resin, embroidered magnolia pods, custom paper towels and embroidered fabric.

LabSynthE is a creative laboratory in the School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication at the University of Texas at Dallas. Word, Thread and The Magnolia was inspired by magnolia leaves, their shadows, and a poem by Chilean artist and poet, Cecilia Vicuña.
