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 a 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, while packing, 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, and it is a good affordable precursor to my bigger research based project I still intend to undertake. 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 portioned off landscape. I could still do samples of these locations, and exhibit the results with the final piece. I am still looking for more volunteers from the Hunter Region so please let me know if you are interested in hosting a piece, small or large.
