All the wool my mother never knitted


Summer 2009 on

I began by drawing a timeline to scale that reflects the amount of time I have lived in each place, and setting myself criteria for the process of knitting – how long I knitted for and how many stitches I kept on the needles in each location meant that its shape changed as it ‘mapped’ the journey. Currently 70m long, I have shown it as an interactive living art installation both in the town in which I live and in the Bristol Live Platform.
With much wool still to knit, it will continue to grow as I make other journeys within this open-ended process.
