Made by: Ele

Ele Carpenter made this patch during Interactive Screen at the Banff New Media Institute, Banff Centre for the Arts, Alberta, Canada, August 2007.

Notes:

Lindsay and I found this fabric in the Banff Centre costume department stores. They make costume's for all the theatrical productions here, so they have a lot of great fabrics. All the scaprs are in cardboard boxes labeled by colour range, such as 'reddish scraps' or 'orangey scraps'. This patch is made from lining fabric, and is very thin and shiny. I chose the closest colour thread to help give density to the colour.

Whilst sewing the patch I remembered a strange event from my childhood. I must have been about 9 or 10 years old and I attended a youth drama group at the Penultimate Picture Palace in Oxford. The group sat in a circle to discuss our project. A young woman kept scratching her leg complaining of pins and needles. After a while she found a pin stuck in the fabric of her trousers. Much relieved the group continued and the young woman fiddled with the pin and holding it in her mouth. Several minutes later she exclaimed that she had swallowed the pin! Although she may have simply dropped it on the floor.

It is only now that I recount the story that it sounds theatrical!
