shell river

Lee Thomson's avatar Lee Thomson

Part of a series exploring river topography across an idealized landscape, shell river shows a series of sinuous loops demonstrated in life by by medium water flow, high sediment load and low slope. Assorted white fabrics ripped and stitched in place make up the background. The river is defined by antique and vintage shell buttons, and linen threads. Sections are stitched together with linen line.
