An artist's book created for the exhibition Screen for another focus at Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh.

 

The work incorporates images from the photographic archive of the studio kept at Mount Stuart on the Isle of Bute.

 

Photographs have been  cropped or collaged and carefully sequenced across the pages of the book emphasising notions of touch and sensuality. The work offers an interpretation of the historically gendered practices within tapestry production.
