Exhibited in the Human Rights Art Award, Darwin, 2006.
I have knitted a lot of woolen ‘quadrapods’ for friends’ kids. They started life as a horse type creature but ended up as a uncategorised 4-legged thing. The main criteria was for it to have many limbs to be carried by or to put in one’s mouth.
This piece is knitted from plastic bags and bits of flyscreen. The texture is similar to the effect you find along some fences where plastic shopping bags have accrewed and matted into a thick. lumpy, faded fabric.
