I visited the site last month to see and select a location for the piece. My work is very site specific, for scale, wind and how it will interact with its surroundings.
I brought three samples of pink ripstop nylon, they were all really similar in colour but also different weights so holding it up to see which catches and has the best movement was important. The colour really cuts into the green surroundings.
The location Rinus and I discussed was really interesting, next to the river with a glove either side. The gloves will begin to also interact with the river creating and mimicking its movements but also react to the sounds it creates.
