This commission champions the often-unseen process of making by evoking a moment suspended in time where vital decisions about materials and their composition are made

This, looped explores the pleasure taken in the action of making and the creative decision making integral to this process.

Well known for her context-specific installations and working printshops, former Turner Prize nominee Phillips explores issues relating to the cultural representation of women in her practice by both making reference to the work of other female artists and print's important relationship to do-it-yourself culture.

Invited by V&A Dundee to explore an unseen aspect of the V&A’s Scottish Design collections, Phillips spent time with the collections of textiles and ceramics in South Kensington, drawing inspiration from items that exist purely for the purpose of testing out ideas and methods, such as ceramic colour charts, fabric swatches, and embroidered samplers.
