Beatles/Proclaimers mash up (Sgt Pepper/Sunshine on Leith)
"Cassette doilies are part of a series of random classic album pieces, all the cassettes are bought in second hand shops, found or given and the patterns were found free online and date from the 1920’s to the 1970’s. I’m a 2nd hand shop rummager and the things I’m always drawn to are pieces of crochet lace, books, vinyl and cassettes. This piece of work is made as a response to the feelings I get when I see a piece of work that’s taken many hours and has now been discarded or an album thats been listened to over and over again and now replaced with newer technology, or an old library book stamped many times and now on a thrift shop shelf. I think about the many times that object was handled during its making/listening/reading and about the thoughts and the feelings, hopes and aspirations experienced during that time by the anonymous owner/maker."
