In my recent project, 'A stich for every sound: Chelsea Space' I integrate individual experiences and perceptions of the surrounding environment into my process of stitchery in collaboration with Gavin Osborn, a musician. By identifying metronomic frequencies across various elements, I create distinctive embroidery patterns resembling maps.
'A stitch for every sound: Chelsea Space' is presented at Woven Expression: Narrating Stories through Patterns exhibition curated by 2022/23 MA Curating and Collections students at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL, in collaboration with the Archives and Special Collections Centre (ASCC) at London College of Communication, and Chelsea Space. The exhibition takes inspiration from the archive of British weaver and educator Barbara Sawyer (1919–1982), who taught at Camberwell School of Arts & Crafts for over 30 years. Sawyer’s textile works have recently been catalogued at the ASCC. In dialogue with the archival material, 'A stitch for every sound' expands the communicative dimensions of pattern through embroidery and considers how embroidery can be used to capture and document specific memories and experiences associated with patterns in sound-based media.
