“to begin at the beginning
deep in rural France
i came across piles and
piles of very very old
vintage used linen sheets
which had beautiful textures.
when i closely looked
at the sheets there was
a sense of life in the fabrics
as i randomly ran my
hand over each sheet
i felt a unique individual
character in the fabrication of the weave.
no sheets were the same.
each had it own personal grain and mark.
i began to realise that people during
the night slept on these linen sheets
and glided into their dreams deep into the black night.
come draw your ear closer to the
yarn of the linen sheets and
you can hear their dreams.
one metre along the fibres
and a peep show, two metres
she gives birth to a squealing piglet.”
