Homeless, with a loom that she carries wherever she goes, artist Erin Riley is not living on the street. Instead, she has figured out her own way of surviving, moving from one artists’ colony to the next (the MacDowell Colony, the Bemis Center, the Vermont Studio Center, etc.), as she weaves her contemporary narratives on life and its dangers. A Fleisher Challenge winner for 2011-12, who’s part of a Fiber Philadelphia show in March, 2012, at Space 1026, she provides a window into some of her personal life, her thoughts and her methods.

This episode is edited by Peter Crimmins. The music is by Eric Biondo. The slide show is edited by artblog Intern Alison McMenamin. Thanks to the Knight Foundation for helping us get the ball rolling on this project. Thanks also to J-Lab‘s Enterprise Reporting Fund and William Penn Foundation for additional support and to our partner WHYY NewsWorks.org.
