imagery from the science fiction of my mid-20th century childhood. A time tinged with an abstract threat of apocalypse and utopian visions of ‘starting again’ in new galaxies. A visual language that describes and documents our histories and journeys. Old tapestries in museums illustrate the same intrepid imagination and meticulous craft as more recent science fictions and technologies. I’m developing a playful iconography that threads through these time-travelling references – black holes that might be portals or thought bubbles; frayed fabrics that are technical but fragile; gold bunnies showing a precious moment in time. I’m interested in the idea of world-making through drawing, of becoming a master of these imagined utopias in times that are deeply unsettled and saturated with unreadable ‘information’.
