With an ever-present wariness of climate disaster, my work forms a portfolio of imagined futures. I envision extreme solutions to environmental problems, such as reverting to prehistoric lifestyles or leaving the earth altogether in an arc-like space craft to avoid natural disaster which surely awaits us. These ideas culminate into hand woven images. Cloth is a basic need when it forms shelter, and a way of preserving histories (true or false) when pictorial. Each colour in my tapestries are hand dyed from plant life which I have foraged from my local area. There is a sense of foreboding, but also wanderlust. By exploring potential futures through ancient and sustainable mediums, I aim to raise thoughts about the way human lifestyles evolve through time, and how we may ourselves adapt to stay in tune with both our immediate surroundings, and our wider environment- Earth.
