Installation: Shetland lace knitting using shirring elastic
‘My art practice draws inspiration from craft traditions. Sculptures, installations and performance work all reference domestic crafts. I am interested in exploring the sculptural and architectural potential of a medium and techniques that allow for a renewed understanding of traditional crafts in a contemporary context.
Another World Wide Web (2011) consists of a series of modular web-like structures knitted in shirring elastic using a traditional Shetland lace technique. I am interested in how the work is moulded and shaped by the nature of the space and architecture where it is installed. Installing these pieces to furnish otherwise redundant or overlooked areas of a building, in-between spaces, I aim to give visitors a new perspective on the museum or gallery.’
