Making of the Quilts

The Words-We-Write quilt displays commonly (over)used anthropological jargon in black and grey letters on a white background.  The words featured in the quilt come from a compilation of ten years’ worth of article titles from the journal Cultural Anthropology, as well as from several conversations with anthropologists in the process of writing their dissertations.

The World-We-Write-In quilt spells out realities of the world around us in bright-colored letters on a black background.
