There's a futility to her calling out a warning that no one can hear - and I like that she does it anyway - there is a kindness from the periphery.</p><p> </p><p>I was interested in using Kate Bush's satellite perspective of the earth as a way to select and sort through appropriated imagery of space travel from the internet. I then re-imagined and reconfigured these images into a series of photo-tapestries.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
