This is the beginning of my work with fabric. The fabrics were collected by myself and friends over a long time, and come from countries to our north, representing my first journey to Asia. Articulate project space (Aps) is a very long narrow space so I conceived the installation as a road or journey with houses lining the road reminiscent of the way Cambodian houses stretch out like beads along a string.  Transitioning through space  the experience changed from openness at the beginning to one of intimacy and private contemplation. The experience was enhanced by coloured  walls which also unified  unify the whole.
