28ft installation. 2018.
Cotton and acrylic yarn, latex, digitally printed photograms, repurposed pillowcase board, 35mm slides and overhead projector.
This piece was created for my final year Degree Show. My grandad was a photographer before he died and the hundreds of slides that were boxed up in my nan’s house, told a powerful narrative to me. I felt a strong connection to the people in these photographs even though they are not my memories. I took inspiration from the colours and imagery of these slides, replicating them throughout my tufted path. The final result displays a ‘life path’, showing how I have been influenced by my family history and how it has led to me to the artist that I am today.
