week 3

What was life like for the 180 convict women on the first voyage to Australia. They had no idea where they were going. Day followed night followed day. Their days ebbed and flowed, slipped into and out of each other, the same thing, no respite, just their own thoughts.

each strand is a series connected shapes
overlay of tracing paper
just some of the detail picked out


  1. I also liked the overlay - the way the details form their own shapes and tell their own stories independently of the original rope.
    and I like the segmentation of the rope elements - the basic units, words in lost conversations.
