"Filamentous Magic Carpets", that means: living vehicles. They give protection or danger. They have slimy antennae. They talk to the universe and friends. They come from Bernadette Mayer's book "Utopia". But their filaments also appear elsewhere: in the textile works of her sister Rosemary. In looms and star beams. They protrude from human cells, viruses, and circuit boards. They move and note. They vibrate.
