Some of you know that I have been experimenting with the idea of collecting fallen dust on canvas, creating a visual representation of what we breathe. I had begun a research based experimental arts project a year or so ago, but alas, I did not secure the main funds. With moving, selling house, full time stay at home mum duties, I decided to put it on hold. Then good friend and artist, Dion Archibald, decided to move to Istanbul, and gave me two rolls of canvas. How generous! It got me thinking. As I was moving house I found my iron ore dust canvas patchwork experiment I did while living in Whyalla. I could try the patchwork approach for this project. It may not work, but why not try? Random sized pieces collecting dust over a year and then collected to be stitched together to form a patchwork that would reference an aerial view of a landscape? Could the locations be sampled to determine what is present in the dust? With these questions in mind the project has begun and I do not know what will happen, but so should it be with art……If you are interested in hosting a piece, small or large.
