11/11 Manual 11

The RISD Museum's biannual magazine Manual has been published and Issue 11 revolves around the subject of Repair.

Manual 11 - Repair
I am pleased to have participated in Double Take whereby two specialists from different fields offer their thoughts and views on the same object from the RISD Museum's collection. On this occasion, Lilian Wong, who is the Chair of Interior Architecture and the Co-founder of INT/AR Journal, and myself wrote about a pair of cotton knit stockings from the early 1900's.
From my perspective, the three raspberry-pink stripes provided an enticing opener to ponder about Kate Kittredge and her carefully darned stockings.

American or English Stockings, early 1900's. Length 54cm. Cotton knit

About Me

Lisa Z. Morgan is an artist, designer and writer. The subject and object of desire has been a palpable constant within her artistic expression both as a motivation and in its embodiment or articulation. Through her creativity and research Morgan examines how the value of provenance, of rarity and storytelling, puts into question or provokes our understanding and relationship towards desire and the desire impulse. Her focus has been how we may access, stimulate and touch the internal points of registration or the emotional dynamics of bodily perception. In essence she attempts to define and make manifest the feeling of feeling. Her work inhabits a space where art, semiotics, design and fashion intersect. Morgan is the Co-Founder of STRUMPET & PINK and the Co-Founder of The Lavender Hinge. She is the author and creative editor of Design Behind Desire and also a contributor to SHOWstudio and The Laboratory Arts Collective.
