Castle on the Hill utilizes the old technology of stitching to connect with the individuals who resided in former institutions via the repetition of the process of sewing.  This embroidery is of the floor plan on the Fergus Falls Regional Treatment Center, a Kirkbride building.  Also included in this work is a paper cutout of the outside of the old asylum.
