DAWN THORNE – TEXTILES
Dawn aims to visualize the unquantifiable, the intangible record of the action of movement of as we occupy time and space performing a process of making, then turns the data into a signature pattern code that can be taken into interiors, clothing and artworks.
Through research and investigation Dawn uses photography and film to define and quantify movement into a visual blueprint depicting the motions and actions of the body as it moves through time, engaging with process. Current studies enable Dawn to collaborate with other makers to record differences in individuals movements when creating the same action. These studies aim to establish unique pattern codes of movement between makers.
The notion of this record is to validate the existence of being a maker, without the physical act of performance in time and space, the realized outcome would cease to exist yet, this detail of the process is rarely considered, but is fundamental to the work itself.
