Interpreting site - the rusted version

I chose some materials that most evoke that part of the garden I have chosen as my "site", I set about creating texture and layers - by machine and hand stitching. Rusted cheesecloth, hand made papers, interfacings and silk were layered and stitched. Sometimes the lack of support or stabiliser increased the pull of the stitched threads to create soft mounds - mysteries that require additional exploration.
