As part of our Thinking Cap series, two of the most beautiful wingnuts we know permitted us a brief glimpse into their collaborative, poetic, finely tuned and deeply nuanced creative process. Emily Baker of Sword + Fern and sound artist Kerby Ferris — together they form Lavender Mirror — bend molecules to their will, help Uncle Larry make sense of it all, and love each other beyond measure.
Watch and weep, and make stuff.
Share something about your creative process with us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. We'll keep an eye out and send treats to the creators who catch our eye. acehotel.com/thinkingcap
