Bobbins V Gravity - an art installation

I spent yesterday afternoon out in the park again with artist Andrew Martyn Sugars, as he created an amazing installation using string and bobbins.  The bobbins were donated by The North Mill and had been used when the mill was up and running.

This work was a development piece that grew out of a previous installation at The Eco Centre in Wirksworth and drew on Andrews own history of working with laser beams. We had a very soggy day which was thoroughly enjoyable, friends popped in and strangers stopped to chat with their inquisitiveness piqued.

I also took the opportunity to experiment with some of the pieces I've been crocheting to help explore future community yarn bombing projects.
