A1: Ode to the sheep

Helixes, 2015 - 17

Yarn and skein, Icelandic wool, hand spun.

Everything is connected.

Look at the helix, or spiral: from far away our galaxy looks like a spiral. The spiral can be found in many plants and animals, we have a spiral on the back of our heads, the rim of our ears is called helix. DNA, the building block of life, is in the form of a spiral.

 As I am spinning wool into yarn I am making a spiral.
