Auntie Peggie Has Departed, 2003. mercerised cotton, audio equipment, 2 part looped soundtrack. Aldwych Tube Station, London, England. ( listen to the soundtrack while viewing the work. so creeptacular, i love it!
"Doilies are like dream catchers, each knot holding a thought, a memory. The sum of these make up the history of a place. The soundtrack accompanying this piece echoed the sounds of people going by, things rushing though, the circulation of air itself.
It focused the attention on the character of the subterranean space: angular and mechanical noises, musical fragments, sounds signals, human voices, echoed from one area to another. The soundtrack created a unique aural experience out of a real, remembered or imaginary situation.
The piece was dedicated to Peggy, and her lifelong enthusiasm for the crochet work and needlecraft."
