Kokoro Bensonoff and Talia Lefton have been working collaboratively since 2013. They met through the JP arts community and it was quickly apparent that they have common themes that wind through their individual art work and an interest in working together to create bigger projects. Some of their notable works are an 11′ long woven and felted tapestry, lighted up from behind to create a star-scape for the winter solstice, and a striking rainbow cloth covering for a 10′ diameter tee-pee structure entitled “The Fort of Fortuitous Fortunes”. Kokoro and Talia have collaborated to bring decoration and atmosphere to many community gatherings in and around Jamaica Plain.
