“Resting Sail” (2020) lays dormant, yet sways like the surface of the nightly sea. This delicately structured, hand-woven textile is composed much like the fabric of the oceans today: organic material intimately adjoined with engineered fibres. In a moment of contemplation, the future of this delicate web is under review.

The textile blends ancient wool and linen with contemporary kevlar and carbon. Furthermore, woven into the work are optical fibres typically used in underwater communication cables, as well as polyamide, used widely in fishing nets known to be the biggest plastic polluters of the ocean.

Similarly to traditional sails, the piece is constructed by way of the sturdy twill weave, yet unlike functional sails, “Resting Sail” is woven loosely. Winding threads like trade routes, its delicate structure acts as an inhibition and the quest is pulled to a halt. Instead of voyaging in search of new, untapped resources for the benefit of the blue economy, here is an invitation to pause and reroute.
