“Door Coils”

by timpughartist

The installation was made at the old hat factory in Cleator in West Cumbria on an office door on a bitterly cold day in January 2015.Lengths of discarded foam were tightly coiled and adhered onto the door using over 300 drawing pins and left to dangle.The patterns are reminiscent of fossils or Catherine wheel fireworks.For several days after I had sore thumbs after pushing so many pins into the door.
