mid-90s Pocahontas Nightgown, felt, .11 delica beads

Deconstructing and reconstructing the image of Disney’s Pocahontas. I cut out and gave away patches from my nightie, asking those who lovingly accepted to tag the image in their social media feeds to build a distorted, digital quilt of Pocahontas with the hashtags #mypocahontas #sagepaul.

Commissioned by Ditty Bag

For Craft Ontario Sage Pal is cutting her well-worn, childhood nightie into patches. In this poignant act, she reconstructs the image of Pocahontas through tradition and technology as she beads the cloth fragments and sends them physically and digitally into the world.
