TOOLS, MATERIALS AND PROCESSES

absence/ presence of my father;

fading; 

feel of his hands rough from sandpaper;

remembered by tool marks,

dried paint brushes,

the smell of beeswax on his hands;

 

remaking/rewording; 

smoothing down;

exploring these thoughts through repetition,

faint residue of memory;

retelling stories, what did he tell me?

who will say to me now how to?

 

male, female,

passive, active in the workshop;

pushing, standing still;

creating the family DIY bible;

the importance of our timeline; 

measuring the existence of the past;

the co-ordinates of Golden Time; 

 

threads; conversations; watching to learn;

questioning all the time; 

mind your beeswax!
