Material Encounters I

I started crocheting with a course garden twine,

one I am sure my mother will tie the tomatoes with.

I do not have the predetermined shape

I picked up this embodied knowledge of looping, knotting

on a metro line in Santiago, Chile, from a stranger

they showed me how to weave a knowing only made by doing

repetitive knotting of matter

I think I once read, we only use a small percent of our brain

for the analytical and intellectual stuff.

But in such an act as weaving, I feel more parts of lit light up

I am thinking through form, repetition, movement.

The outcome, undetermined.
