I was thinking about using stitch as a possible medium for my 'what is a line' brief. I came across these reworked book covers in the form of stitch....
I am not particularly keen on these, however I still like the concept of using stitch in some way.
I have just come across this and think it is such an inventive idea ...I can't wait to see any results they post! i'll be keeping an eye on this one.
I think this concept would be relevant to the definition of a line referring to the descendants of an individual.
The Early Years: 1981-89, A Retrospective Told in Buttons and Pins from Mette Hornung Rankin on Vimeo.
Mette has also used buttons to represent his childhood years...another unique concept fitting to this definition of a line.
'The Sketchbook Project'
Sent 28839 sketchbooks to artists from 49 countries. Just under 10000 were completed and returned. The exhibition tour began Feb 2011. Mette's entry.....
Through my 'What is a Line' project I want to create an sketchbook filled with little sketches like these; using the four definitions as my theme.
