Danielle Burke’s current work focuses on historical weaving patterns from the Southern Highlands region of Appalachia. Through this and other work, she hopes to better understand the boundaries of authenticity, role of craft within a traditional practice, the influence of landscapes on material culture, and the ways that textiles also act as texts.
