Size: 8" x 8" (20cm x 20cm)
Materials: paper, thread, casette
Techniques: collage, weave
Made for the "Seeing Red" Exhibition at the Bishopstown Library, November 2010, this piece uses a single continuous piece of tape for the warp (which has been set horizontally) and is about the difficulty of settling into a new community when the spoken and written language is a limited means of communication. Formal passport application, work card application and tax forms make the background.
