Weekend in Hanoi

Just returned from a long weekend in Hanoi, to leave these cyanotype clothing with Maison des Arts for the Long Bien Bridge Festival.

Memories of Hanoi's Long Bien Bridge on fabric

I finished off several pieces. They're stretched on steel and Vietnamese bamboo: with metal structures above, humanity at the center, and the earth supporting it all, I thought of the living bridge that spans this busy city. It has a huge personality: what history it's witnessed, from its inception by Eiffel over a century ago, to the present.
