The world said, and the consequence was 2013 – 2014

Materials: Found objects and documentation [in progress]

The World Said, And The Consequence Was is a memorial to the act of finding over 100 objects found within the walls of the top floor space of Salts Mill which was once the spinning room of the former Mill.

“At the time, I was developing two other works for the exhibition Cloth and Memory {2} and was returning to the space to look for more wool within the ventilation alcoves for the making of If Walls Could Talk,The Last Yarn. Within the now vast and empty space these alcoves recessed along the outer walls were it seems, the perfect space for discarding, hiding, loosing, and preserving not only fragments of wool but also many objects ranging from centuries old to more recent and familiar lifetimes. Each small space contained an archive, which unlike a typical museum collection, crossed time and hierarchy; from the everyday and personal items to industrial remains creating a unique portrait of the people who worked there and a narrative of the events around the space.”
