When is a failure not a failure?

When it is the result of an experiment. The fact of the experiment and the answers it delivers are in themselves a success.

Two experiments today: 

1. An attempt to discharge a sample collaged piece. Some of the fabrics were completely resistant to the bleach product. 

2. I had an idea about distortion and there was some along the way but it resolved itself the more stitching I did. On the good news front, I am getting the rigidity I want so that I can create a large free-standing form. 

Next I will try several holes in the same piece which is my eventual goal. Maybe there will be more distortion because the sides won't be available to release it.
