‘Black Hole with Event Horizon Firewall’

103 cm high x 88 cm wide x 6 cm deep.

Begun in 2018 and completed in 2019 (3 weeks before the picture of a real Black Hole came out on TV!)

This is a hanging sculpture from recycled material made from all my old stockings, cut lengthwise, plaited, and finely-stitched into a deep dark central hole, surrounded with its Firewall of brightly-coloured energy-sparks in concentric rings.

As I stitched the plaits, they made their own 3- d shapes. (The shards of colour evoke for me, too, electric moments in my own life’s event horizon).
