Early Yarnbomb Experiment (2010)

 

This early piece was an experimental animation utilising yarnbombing, a term used for textile graffiti that often incorporates knitting, crochet and weaving. As urban themes permeate my work, yarnbombing offers the opportunity to combine my chosen textile medium with the actual environment that inspires my work. Here, the dirt and industrial nature of the space contrasts with the satin ribbons of the weaving, while the colours of the ribbons echo those of the traffic cones stored beneath the metal staircase.
