Recent research into movements made during stitching through cloth has resulted in a series of ‘blueprints’

Dawn explores and records movement then turns her research into a visual blueprint depicting the motions and actions of the hand as it moves through time. The notion of this record is to validate the existence of being a maker, without the physical act of performance in time and space, a realized outcome would cease to exist yet, this detail of the process is rarely considered, but is fundamental to the work itself.

The work is part of my MA and can be seen at the James Hockey Gallery, Farnham. UCA.
