Carrier Bag and Projection by Helen Scalway

Photograph of a master embroiderer in a workshop in Varanasi, India, projected onto a giant ‘carrier bag’ and a smaller one with drawing (Helen Scalway) based on a nineteenth century house in the Green Street area with ornament derived from textiles in the local South Asian shops. The bobbins in this image of layered places come from an old British textile mill and contain silk thread, probably made from South Asian imports.
