All the wool my mother never knitted - Sedition

Carlisle, England

September 2010

Having visited all the places I have lived, the knitting measured approx 25 metres of varying widths representing 63hrs of knitting. During the private view of Sedition, I sat wrapped in the knitting and continued to knit for 2hrs, representing my time living in Carlisle since I began the journey in 2008. Over the 3 month duration of the exhibition, I visited the installation from time to time in order to continue to 'knit myself out of Carlisle', as it were, with an ever-decreasing number of stitches on the needles until only one remained.
