Prevailing winds

In 2017 whilst on a residency at Bradley University in Peoria (IL), I developed a research project, 

Prevailing Winds, consisting of a letterpress book, flag, photographs, etchings and screen prints.

I presented it in progress as part of the Terrain Biennial on a sun porch at Project 1612. 

Disturbance Patterns

Digitally printed flag

Collaborative piece made with James Hatton


This flag consists of a scanned photograph with a typewritten poem across the surface of the skin, as it were, rescanned and reproduced as a digitally printed fabric piece.


The text reads:

I am constantly sketching

the disturbance pattern

the wind draws on the

back of my hands as I walk

Terrain Biennial opening night, hosted and curated by Project 1612

About Terrain Biennial:

Terrain biennial was founded in 2011 by Sabina Ott’s and author John Paulett, repurposing private spaces such as front yards, porches, or windows, turning them into public spaces in order to foster dialogue between neighbours and providing opportunities for artists and viewers alike to experience new perspectives.
