My Fiber Art 

I die each cotton bandages (various width) in gradational colors.
I use Reactive Dye that resists sun beams, wash and friction.
I use the bandages in diverse ways
 (wrapped, weaved, hung ,etc)

In Colored Fauna and Flora, I wrapped them around wood.
I place on them spiders, butterflies, leaves (also made dyed bandage)

 Cubes, leaves and butterflies are clear starched (by alginate sodium gel)
I cut them my arbitrary wide size.
Then I wove (braid) them and press with bond.
