About this project

I am interested in utility cloth and it’s role in art fabric. I’m fascinated by the structure and behaviour of cloth. In parallel I am intrigued by electronic circiuit boards, the lay out and diversity of the components - capacitors, transmitters, oscillators, diodes etc
The arrangement of the parts being vital to the sequence of information transmitted. Each tapestry in this work delights in the unusual mix of organic and plastics material. ‘The Soft Machine’ is the amazing object !
