I am meeting Jiseon Lee Isbara, the head of the Fibers Department at the Oregon College of Art and Craft. She is brilliant. I feel greedy and desirous of her work, wanting to posses and claim it and hang it in my house. But I also relate to her and find her choice of topics- multitasking- particularly relative to my life. We share something. We share an obsession with order and time and the belief that, with a plan, we can orchestrate a perfect life of productivity. It is a ridiculous approach to being an animal on this lush earth. It is also a childlike quality and is made human and endearing through her work. How vulnerable and brave she is.
Job or no job, I am excited to be part of her day. Do you see it, written there... "meet emily, noon, fashion class?"
