Essay by Chris Funkhouser on text/textile

When I was on residency in Latvia courtesy of the Electronic Text + Textile Project, I got lonely and was on an irregular sleep schedule (jetlag) so craved connection through my project. I asked people for whom I'd made textile pieces over the last few years to write or create some kind of response: cd be a poem, a word, a photo, etc. Chris responded with this essay, which later came out in Jacket Magazine. I was honored, and found exceptionally useful the insights Chris had about the nuances of textural, textilic textuality, and of textual textiles.
