Focusing on my current body of work, the ‘Mem-or-y’ series, this article is an autobiographical account presenting my ongoing practice and research interest in the interrelationship between photography, textiles and Zeitgeist concerns. In this body of work, through a tacit response to materials and processes, craft practice becomes a vehicle for engaging with social issues, exploring complex questions surrounding personal concepts of identity, the reliability of memory and the increasing incidence and awareness of the many forms of dementia, particularly Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia. Fabric has become a vehicle for exploring these concerns.
