During her time at Black Mountain College, Anni made several trips to Mexico and South America, where she was inspired by the motifs, patterns, and colors of indigenous art. Upon returning, Anni started to incorporate similar designs into her works on the loom. However, whereas traditional weaving was grounded in largely functional purposes, Anni elevated her productions to stand alone as visual and conceptual art, devoid of utilitarian purpose.
