BA (Hons) Embroidery

Joy Morris

Through drawing and collage I create visual responses of mapped journeys within Manchester. I use instinctive recording to examine ways in which people experience the city. Looking at the contrast between monotonous repetition and the spontaneity of city life, my work uses found multiples combined with intuitive composition. Through scaling down materials which are often seen as mundane or unattractive, I build up opulent and intricate pieces. I apply complex and time consuming processes to the things we usually overlook to spark an awareness of how much visual information we unconsciously digest through city routes.
