this is a knitted piece from an artist called rachael gomme

'In making work about waiting, one of my aims was to make concrete the time spent waiting which often ‘disappears’ when the thing awaited arrives. This is How Long is a cumulative performative knitting piece. For a residency in London, I knitted each time I waited for public transport. Each different-coloured section thus marked and materialised a time of waiting. Each time I returned to the gallery for which the piece was made I hung the work, marking on the wall the times and places where I had waited.'

i have been thinking of the time invested in making and how often i am never sure how long it has taken me to make work. i should begin to document the time involved in the next bird .
