Silk paper, Machine stitching onto soluble vylene and dissolved
Quite simply this piece of work combines my two passions, the environment and textile arts. It is constructed entirely of stitching onto soluble vylene, which is then dissolved, leaving a mesh of threads. This enables you to look through to the underlying layers as though looking into a forest. The layered effect also allows lights to cast shadows that move as you walks past, enhancing the visual experience.
