East Anglian Stitch Textiles
Share the textile love...

Work in Progress by new EAST Member Vinny Stapley

I am fascinated by intertidal zone plants, these delicate natural forms that grow in glorious overlapping profusion, their network of roots literally ‘meshing’ together our fragile coastline, reducing the destructive energy of the sea as it flows in and around them. I have found an analogy between these root networks and the ‘world wide web’ keeping us connected with our loved ones during lockdowns and have stitched printed binary code into weblike panels to symbolise these connections.

Such beautiful images and evocative work.
Can’t wait to see the “real” thing!
