In Jen Bervin’s performative drawing Silk Line, she used a white pencil line on a large glass window to draw forms based on the filament pattern the silkworm makes in creating its cocoon.

This piece was first performed as part of the exhibition From Line to Constellation curated by Francesca Capone at the Cohen Gallery at Brown University. 

A second performance was part of a solo exhibition Tiraz and Silk Line curated by Jenny Gerow at BRIC in Brooklyn in September 2016.
