Who loves a chain link fence? Not me. I know they have a purpose, but I have never seen one to love until today.
Based on a project, Katherine Daniels, did on Randall’s Island two years ago, I had an idea that the new chain link fence enclosing the playground on Randall’s Island, could be improved by adding a design using fence weave, a construction material.

I starting thinking about who would be the perfect person to come up with a concept for the fence design using plastic. I thought of my sister. Sheila, has been weaving for 30 years and currently has a business creating handbags by weaving strips made from ordinary plastic bags of every imaginable color. She was the logical choice to visualize a design for the fence and execute it with a group of volunteers.
