Tempus Machinus

Texts allow us to communicate in a high tech manner, unlimited by space and time. We can chat with friends in faraway places, who read the messages at their own schedule.  We now live in the science fiction future we once read about in novels like Time Machine.

The word "text" comes from Latin textus "style or texture of a work," literally "thing woven".  So I added a personal challenge of exploring texture. Adding layers of metallic paint over the heavy quilting, created metallic steampunkish style.   Quilted into the gears and cogs, letters are an homage to H.G.Wells, and Henry, a young man who inspires me with his creative mind.  I included my own personal "A to Z", since my first name starts with an A and my last name ends in Z.
