Needle Exchange

Needle Exchange is a work in two parts.  Davis asked tailors that she passed by in her daily travels to exchange a threaded needle with her.

The collection of the tailors’ threaded needles serves as a static counterpoint to the tailors’ use of Davis’s threaded needles to mend garments of countless unknowing participants, each of whom will activate the second part of the work by traveling out into the world in countless directions.
