just a moment with Alicia Merrett

A few years ago Alicia Merrett from the United Kingdom discovered the potential of maps and aerial views as sources for textile work.  Spacetime Geographies:Town Journeys is a continuation of that creative practice:

In life we move through the three dimensions of space, and also along the fourth dimension of time. In this abstracted map of a town, inhabitants who go about their daily activities, journey not only in space but in time. Places are signposted, but there also clocks showing different times.

Alicia is presenting a special two day workshop in Shropshire on 24 and 25 May: read more about The View from Above: Adventures in Textile Map-Making.
