‘Journal Fragments’ 2011


This work was installed as part of the temporary, two-week sculpture trail ‘Art in the Woods’ as part of Holmfirth Arts Festival 2011.


Responding directly to the wooded landscape of Home Styles Reservoir, research involved observing and responding directly to the site. Photography, cyanotype prints and journal notes aimed to capture responses to the sights and sounds of the woods. A series of six textile banners capture these observations first hand, alongside a large ephemeral work, comprising embroidered text on a dissolvable substrate. This work was intended to degrade in wind and rain, responding to the fleeting nature of remembered experiences.
