Work in progress: Thesis (Swatches + Wool)


Considering symbolism, emotions and how to condense 7000 words into two without further conversation.
Colour is one of the ways I'm trying to wrap my head around it all (literally).
 Abstracting, creating, destroying are a few of my favourite things so in case you were wondering why I have been asking a lot about colours lately that is why. 
Knitted bows,bracelets and necklaces are a way of me surveying colour choice of people and what it represents to them on an aesthetic, emotional, symbolic level then considering what role they play in my life and how it shapes my perception.

Death Vs. Dying II

My mum told me to delete these photos, esp. the ones of my Grandmother's body. 
But I think my camera is one of my coping mechanisms regardless of what emotive state I am in.
Due to the doco. i'm working on currently with some of my collective and my thesis themes of positive / negative aging and death have come up quite a lot. 
It got quite close to home with the passing of my Grandmother.  

Death Vs. Dying.

I was going to write a mini vent, but it seems a bit too personal.
