The Pin Series is an ongoing collection of sculptures, performances and drawings that use dressmaking pins to explore issues of repetition, obsession, the meaning of domestic labour and the power of ritualised mark-making.
‘3 Score & 10’ is a sculpture made from 70 lengths of strings, each containing 365 hand-tied knots. Altogether the work contains 25,568 knots – the exact number of days (including leap years) that you’d live if you reached your biblical 70 years.
Every day in 2007 I drew on an envelope and placed something secret inside. I then posted the envelope to myself before my midnight deadline. When the envelopes returned, they were scanned and blogged.
