Film clips!

Last week for the Brunel Broderers at Bridport Arts Centre for Strand – catch it if you can! Love, love, love Bridport – the Arts Centre, the town, the sea (hmm…especially the sea), the countryside! The Exhibition has been a bit of a dream success!

It started off with an Opening Talk Рto catch some soundbites see this post and read what Polly Gifford, Arts Director, said about the Exhibition and Talk by having a look over here

I need to think how to share the film I made, which is on show with the stitched work. Maybe offering it as a ‘download’ would work… will investigate! Meanwhile, I did a little kind of clip preview of Stitch Meditation …

Joining, and leaving space

for movement: to attune, to ease in the water

susi_bancroft.IMG_2963There is a film of this work on show too – in my mind’s eye it was always drifting in the sea – in the liminal space – filmed at tide turns, dusk and moonrise…

Standing in the sea

Strand Meditation 1

susi_bancroft.through2Walking the shoreline

Tide turn – the space between

Rhythm of waves flowing….

Rhythm of breath, meditation

Dawn and dusk, stitching in early morning

The pause, stilling…..

Rhythm of stitch

The embroidered buttonhole wheels are complete thoughts

Others fragmented, partially formed

The seed beads

Those are the shells, stones, tiny claws

Found objects catching my gaze, mixed on the shoreline
