Continuing the exploration of the action of weaving i have created another piece of work which looks at an originally standard flat weave, constructed using practically any form of paper or card i could find (adverts, leaflets, newspaper etc) and then unpicking the weave to form loops in the surface, thereby reversing the action. I continued to unpick the surface until it became something three dimensional and something that could not be recognised as a weave. It was changed so much it became completely alienated from the original piece, the texture was an eminent part of the finished thing, and the massive loops made the work look really busy. Whilst unpicking the work, i was also unpicking phrases from some of the materials used, in the original piece, the materials were woven so tightly together you couldnt really decipher anything.
Here are some photos of the whole process, a recording of the journey from the original to the changed surface.
