‘Sow: Sew’ Touring Exhibition 2007-09 Pictured at Oldham Gallery. Photographer - Pip Rustage

Created during a residency in the textile craft department at the University of Huddersfield in 2006. Investigating the principles of hand craft with CAD technology and industrial processes. Exploring the industrial Dilo needle felt machine, the Amaya computerised embroidery machine and digital printing to consider the boundaries between hand and mass-production.

 

An exploration of images and issues around the sown seed to the sewn stitch. To compare the marks of industrial textile processes to the pattern of planting by mechanical processes on the land. The cultural difference of wild and cultivated planting in Spain and England. Dialogue and collaboration to expose unseen elements of land and plants. Scientist Mike Ambrose [genetic resources unit manager][at the John Innes Institute in Norwich provided a new language and perception in place and plants.
