  • The House of Comfort Project began through a series of art workshops with disaster-affected communities all over the Philippines. Using cloth, thread, and needle, the work gathers stories of loss and grief into a soft collage of hope and strength. As each piece is stitched into a larger cloth panel, it creates a collaborative space where communities can communicate and work freely as they document and process the past and its traces.
