Prevailing winds

In 2017 whilst on a residency at Bradley University in Peoria Illinois, I developed a research project called Prevailing Winds consisting of a letterpress book, concrete sculptures, a flag, photographs, etchings and screen prints. They were presented as part of Terrain Biennial, a US wide project repurposing private spaces for exhibition making. Prevailing Winds was found on a sun porch at 1612 W Margaret Ave, Peoria IL.

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 in Peoria 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.
