09 Mar TYB Floor Installation – Labyrinth Rug and Platonic Playthings
The labyrinth rug was based on a ink drawing, the trace of the brush marks are still evident despite the digital printing method used. This was intentional, a nod to the hand made. A drawing for the floor. Art you can be on.
The Mirrored Mantle fabric was created at the ‘Installations’ exhibition – ‘drawn by children for children’ seemed appropriate. The shapes were constructed used a quilting method called paper piecing. A 2D jigsaw that forms into a 3D shape.
Material operates as metaphor, using material to expand ideas

A fictional space on the floor
Art as tools, platonic playthings – not fixed, can be moved around and configured easily by mothers or babies. A chance to reveal something else in the work, a new pattern. Audience uses it as a performative space? How the work can change with audience in the space and out of the space – to be continued with the mother and toddlers in April when the scheduled 8 week project goes live.
