Beginning by photographing floral arrangements, I then wrote an algorithm in the Processing programming language to interpret the colours, brightness and saturation of each pixel and convert it into a kind of virtual thread. The result feels like the reverse side of an embroidery and to me evokes ideas of landscape, suggesting elements on both the universal and microscopic scales.
In celebration of my son Pip who was born with a rare genetic deletion called Potocki-Shaffer Syndrome, all proceeds from the sales of these prints will be donated to Rare Voices Australia. RVA who partner with Rare Disease Day, work to raise awareness of rare diseases and create positive policy change. It is estimated that over 350 million people live with a rare disease with up to 7000 different conditions on record, yet in our experience we have found that the system, social, cultural or bureaucratic, does not cater to those with rare conditions.
