Mother Patchwork

Mother Patchwork is the work of John Jennings, UCR professor of Media and Cultural Studies, with David Brame and UCR alumnus Esperanza Bey, stitched together with the sounds of Moon Medicin, and rendered as animation by Daniel Rowe. This animation recognizes that the logic of the quilt, which stitches part to part, is also the logic that transforms still into moving image. And like quilting, it is a process that involves many hands.
