The Myth of Perfection: Tolerance is a Matter of Plus or Minus, Choose Your Degree


"You know there's no such thing as perfection, right?...If you can collectively make the imperfections work, you have perfection."

In The Myth of Perfection (Tolerance is a Matter of Plus or Minus, Choose Your Degree) from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 15, Buffalo-based artist and engineer Alexandra P. Spaulding reflects on her artistic practice, her love of minimalism, and her eventual acceptance of inevitable imperfections. Examining the notions of tolerance and how exacting to the millionth decimal point does not equal perfection, Spaulding focuses both on the visual arts (Minimalism), her own practice (aurally immersive installation art), engineering and manufacturing, and how the conflux of these three schools of thought have made her more accepting of 'the happy accident' and a better artist.

Size Doesn’t Matter When You Make Your Own Clothes

@ VOL 20 ON AUG 18, 2016

In Size Doesn’t Matter When You Make Your Own Clothes at PechaKucha Night Knoxville Vol. 20, Owner Burke Brewer shares how sewing transformed her love of her body, forced her to consider the consequences of buying clothing, and finally why everyone should take up the art of garment sewing. 

Modern Seamstress was created to empower women - to teach them to love their bodies and delight in dressing their bodies. Women fight a war every day for healthy body image, and most of the stress comes from the fashion industry and mass produced clothing.
