Feather Wrap

Lewis, Anna (2003) Feather Wrap. [Artefact] (Unpublished)

Full text not available from this repository.


A large one-off, feather wrap (100cm x 40cm) made from white stripped goose feathers and printed with butterfly wings and individually hand tied in a grid formation with invisible thread. The research question explores the possibilities of producing visual metaphors for the delicate and ghost-like nature of memory. The aim was to create a piece which reflected this fragility and delicacy. The piece is wearable but challenges conventional perceptions about jewellery and wearability and the value of materials.
