Stitch and Thread

Stitched Land
Stitched Land

Inspired by a walk in Wales where the land repeatedly appeared to be stitched together with fences. The posts are pushed into the land in a similar way a stitch is pushed into the cloth. The wire crosses the land as the thread crosses the cloth. When walking in the countryside there are often points that remain more intense in our memory, points to rest and take in the view. Other areas are less significant and yet are a vital part of the phenomenology of the walk.
