A site-specific installation by Wesley Fourie, comprised of knit, textile, and found objects. The centrepiece, a 40m long hand knit blanket, serves as a means to investigate and document the artist's moods over the eight month period of creating the work. Using colour as a means to chart states of being throughout the process of creation, the blanket functions as an emotional ticker tape. Another piece in the installation, a hand embroidered tapestry, is a reproduction of a page taken from the artist's childhood sketchbook.
