The yarn has been dyed in cyanotype and taken on a walk the colour of the yarn is determined by where it fell and the amount of sun it was exposed to. The work has been created using the inlay technique.
The yarn was treated with cyanotype and unraveled whilst walking down from the top of the hill. The warp and weft went in different directions and the shade of blue was determined by the position of the sun and the amount of vegetation present where the yarn fell. 1m by 1m
The black and white prints allow for increased contrast as the images change form mainly black to mainly white, as the amount of water increases.
5 half woven hangings tracing the experience of the waterfall as the walker travels up to the source.
The weft is coated with mud from a walk. The colour of the final cloth was generated from the location. The weft was woven in with decreasing amounts of mud as the weft traversed the warp and journeyed up into the lighter more open weave towards the top of this piece. This is in contrast to the heavy base. Referencing the experience of that day.
This work references the mud-heavy steps of a particular walk in contrast to the light calm atmosphere of the day. Rust is used to generate the earthy colours of the warp; this colour transitioned to the light subtle blue created by the use of cyanotype. Both of these processes took time to react. The rust at the base needed water; the cyanotype needed sun. The colour was present in the warp and held together with a clear monofilament.
