Part of the Red Tape Project
Working as a lawyer I had no idea of the origin of the red tape I used to wrap and seal legal papers. Papers on which life stories were reduced to legal argument to be played out in bureaucratic court processes. Black ink on paper wound with woven thread. Red, on black on white. This was my starting point for the red tape project. Using weave and mixed media techniques I have created a series of individual textile explorations of how red tape can bind us all.
