Effervescent Trail

By  Claire Barber 2003
A fragment of bath insulation outside an electrical shop became the site of an artwork Effervescent Trail (2003) with the gentle insertion of hundreds of pins into the weathered foam seeming to reinforce the surface or almost to protect it, taking it deeper into a treasured object, a memory contained. Effervescent Trail was part of a larger body of work created during the THROUGH THE SURFACE project, presenting me with the opportunity to work in Nishi Otsu in Japan for three months alongside the established textile artist Teruyoshi Yoshida. It was both an innovative and collaborative process of exchange of ideas, techniques and cultural experiences using textiles as the main medium of expression that we perceived on many different conceptual and contextual levels.
