The Contact: Nevadan Orogeny (2011): Both the stitching and dyeing/printing here are incredibly detailed. The Nevadan Orogeny was a mountain-building event in the Jurassic and Cretaceous, during which the Sierra Nevada was probably a range of high mountains and active volcanoes, much like today’s Andes. The buckling and warping of the stitches, and the twisted, slashed fabric gave me a visceral impression of the forces at work down deep as a mountain chain rises.
