HANDMADE FELT WITH FOUND SHEEPS WOOL, SKYRIM TEXTURE PACK, DIGITAL PRINT. 2019

THIS WORK WAS MADE IN RESPONSE TO A JOURNEY I MADE WITH A FRIEND THROUGH THE HILLS OF LANCASHIRE. ALONG THE WAY I COLLECTED SHEEPS WOOL CAUGHT IN FENCES, AND WITHIN THIS WAS TWIGS AND OTHER LANDSCAPE-ESQUE DEBRIS. I INCORPORATED THIS SHEEPS WOOL AND DEBRIS INTO A FELT I MADE IN RESPONSE TO THE JOURNEY. THIS FELT WAS THEN MADE INTO A TEXTURE PACK FOR THE VIDEO GAME SKYRIM AND I JOURNEYED THROUGH THE SKYRIM LANDSCAPE, WHILST FILMING. THIS FOOTAGE WAS THEN LAYERED WITH FOOTAGE I TOOK WHILST ON THE JOURNEY IN LANCASHIRE AND BECAME A BLEND BETWEEN THEM BOTH. 

THE FELT USED IN THIS EXHIBITION CAN BE PURCHASED ON MY ETSY SHOP HERE.

THIS WORK WAS EXHIBITED AT THE HOUSE WARMING EXHIBITION AT SAFEHOUSE 1, COPELAND RD, LONDON IN FEBRUARY 2019.
