In May 2017 I worked with over 400 visitors to Nostell Priory, West Yorkshire to create a collaborative piece celebrating the work of the famous clockmaker John Harrison. Born in nearby Foulby.
John Harrisons invented the marine chronometer, a long-sought-after device for solving the problem of calculating longitude while at sea.
5 wall hangings were created used clock mechanism motifs that reflected the wooden clock parts John Harrison used to create his early chronometers, an example of which was on display at Nostell Priory.
The 5 pieces also echoed the avenue of trees that could be seen for the window in the room, effectively bringing the outside inside.
