Abstract
“JoAnn & Susan x2” begins with a female protagonist, JoAnn Elam, playfully modeling a red, knit blanket, superimposed by a rider, JoAnn's sister Susan Elam, and her steed moseying around a indoor corral in Grayslake, IL. As the juxtaposition continues, Susan meanders in the background and JoAnn time travels backward, through a series of segments utilizing the blanket's progression as a visual marker: she goes from modeling the finished blanket, to sowing the blankets seam, to knitting the blanket in progressively smaller increments.
