Feeding from the words of John Dewey - I learn by doing. Drawing on the song of my existance my recent work reflects on a year long study and exploration of breath, sound and stillness, through stitch and audio work.
I have termed this work the study of The something of nothing. In the search for stillness traces of my being are recorded in audio and then in stitch. The stitches echo sounds made through repeated acts of daily life, and the seemingly small events, rituals and rhythms which mark the passage of time. Stitching onto or into paper creates a notation, or Listening drawing; the sound informs the stitch which again informs another sound.
