Geological map print of Syria (with thanks to the Lapworth Museum of Geology at the University of Birmingham), laser cut (with thanks to Steamhouse), hand stitched with pure silk thread and black, red and gold ink.
I hand stitched the tent like structures with pure silk thread, metaphorically erecting small spaces of sanctuary. Using an embroidery stitch that is synonymous with comfort I selected a blanket stitch to hold the paper structures together.
I was artist in residence at the Lapworth Museum of Geology in 2017 (see my gallery page Future Possibilities Lab 2017 - 2018).
If you would like further clarification on to how read my maps please refer to my Gallery page for a breakdown or KEY.
I'll pray for you Syria
