This afternoon was spent pulling threads from a 2m length of canvas, which is surprisingly therapeutic – particularly after hours spent in the computer suite battling with a hyperlink that wouldn’t work. I’m preparing to create a network of canvas threads that will cover the wall. There is a point beyond which I can’t pull any more away from the strips I’ve been cutting. This leaves a central core of fabric with tufts on either side, giving the appearance of feathers. I love the way the lengths want to reunite as they catch on each other and hold fast – in fact, one of my fellow students in the studio remarked that they had their own character. And they do.
