Kathryn Clark’s Foreclosure Quilts


Artist and former urban planner Kathryn Clark created a series of graphic quilts based on maps of home foreclosures. They are meant to illustrate the affect of the financial crisis. Foreclosed lots are shown as holes in the quilts. The lot locations are completely random and they yield an unexpected beauty when laid out on fabric.

“Quilts act as a functional memory, an historical record of difficult times. It is during times of hardship that people have traditionally made quilts, often resorting to scraps of cloth when so poor they could not afford to waste a single thread of fabric,” said Clark.
