Tape Measure

Working on my installation for the Wirksworth Festival 2013. I’m installing later this week for the festival opening on Friday 6 September.

I had to rethink how I was going to make my original proposal and so made a new maquette and then tried to work out how to translate from cardboard and paper to the real thing. Turns out I just needed to use more cardboard and paper, some wood and then get laser cutting, stitching, folding and slotting. The individual parts of the installation are almost all now made and I will be assembling it on site on Thursday night.

Tape Measure will be in the window of Airr Clothing, the Market Place, Wirksworth for the duration of the festival from Friday 6 to Sunday 22 September.

Tape Measure is one of 10 Contemporary Visual Art commissioned for this year’s festival. Festival details here and also information about the Contemporary Visual Art Focus weekend at the new Northern Light Cinema, Wirksworth on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September.
