Waterside Horse 01 Export-500

A couple of pictures of my performance of the Knitted Horse in Motion at Waterside Art Gallery as part of the opening of ROGUE AT WATERSIDE. I have to say, I was really really nervous all day about whether it would work, especially presenting it within the large theatre, but thankfully there were no hiccups. I had seom great comments afterwards about the piece, as well as a couple of safety concious reminders not to leave the iron on. For those people who enjoyed the music, the playlist was:

Film Material Soup #8 – 30th Nov, 7pm

November 24, 2013 | By | One Comment

Next Saturday I will be doing a ‘knitting performance’ at the FILM MATERIAL SOUP event at Rogue Studios – a chance once again to share my work with knitting machines.

The event showcases work by artists using sound, moving image and lasers. It’s fair to say i’m in some good company (see the list on the flyer below). I’ll be creating the Knitted Horse in Motion from scratch, using the punchcard loop, praying the no yarn snags or dropped stitches befall me. The iconic horse will also be making an appearance as part of David Lynch‘s work with lasers and mobile projection.

Saturday 30th November, 7pm prompt
Rogue Studios project space
67 – 72 Chapeltown St, Manchester
