    Woven on a floor-loom, this tapestry depicts two contemporary queer lovers in a moment of intimacy. the tapestry is made by joining together two separate weavings. The two weavings being stitched together resemble the two bodies coming together. Their hands grasp one another right at the seam of the two weavings. a gentle kiss is the only thing separating these figures. This piece is extremely relevant to the idea of cuffing because it utilizes clothing and material that is common among today's queer community's club scene-- cheeta print, neon colors, and shiny metallic clothing. This is a community that actively partakes in and celebrates the phenomenon of 'cuffing season.'
