Navajo weaving has always reflected the culture and politics in which it was created. And when you grow up in the 1980s, that culture includes Mario Kart, Pac-Man, and Contra. See how Melissa Cody's vibrant weavings draw from her childhood mastery of video games, and how the artist joins a long lineage of innovation and evolution in weaving tradition.
