Aller Farmhouse Day Four

It has been a busy day for me today! Though it is nice to see the installation is starting to take shape.

I am having issues with my bamboo coming out from the ground when the tension gets to high. To solve this problem I am going to bring my beloved staple gun ( I have this with me so much wear it like a necklace) and detract some of the tension onto the frame.

I am also getting very sore fingers and now need plasters to put around my fingers to protect them. This is suffering for your art!

About leah hislop

I am a site specific artist who lives in Taunton. My most recent work concentrates on building large intricate webs out of wool in a space.  Though there is some rough plan to what I will create. I never know how the work will look like because it is made on site and the work often takes the shape of the environment/space it fills. By using my own intuition and working within the space, I feel each work is a unique piece and also has a sense of connection to the place it has been created in. The subject matter of my work explores the boundaries (both physically and physiologically) that we as a society put between ourselves and the world. They also represent for me personally my need to find a sense of place within the world.
