Textile typography project about domestic violence, completed for the final year BA(hons) project at CSM, London, 2004.
Domestic violence often happens behind closed doors where no one can see or hear. A superficial glance at the family might reveal harmony, yet if we look beneath the surface we may find darker, more tragic events unfolding. Sewing, layers and crochet techniques have been implemented to communicate this message.
Each act of violence can work as a catalyst for what may become profound experiences of shock and torment. The cotton thread, the increase in the pace of the crude needle and the pace of volume and sound are symbolic of this gradual movement towards emotional turmoil.
