Aram Han Sifuentes

A fiber artist  working closely with different public and non-profit organizations arranging workshops for immigrant communities with the project : US Citizenship Test Samplers. She is embroidering the questions asked in the process of applying to the citizenship. In this she invites non-citizen to embroider one question and answer, thus becoming an educational side to the project learning about the process. The cost of the work is the sum of what it cost to apply for the citizenship. The project is inspired from the quilt tradition and how it was used to communicate during the times of slavery in US.
