Taking A Thread For A Walk

Exhibition or Installation – Published 10th Sep 15

An installation of works from two workshops undertaken during my doctoral studies presented as an example of documentation and presentation of research data within the critical forum of the Making Research Researching Making conference held at Arkitektskolen Aarhus, Denmark, 10-12 September 2015.

Rather than interviewing participants, I devised workshop tasks in order to explore specific questions concerning people’s perceptions of hand-stitching as both a functional and aesthetic craft, and to explore if and how aspects of this embodied knowledge might be articulated. The exhibit displays a selection of stitched works alongside participants’ reflections organized thematically.
