Making Investigations Toolkit No. 2

We are pleased to be able to bring you the second of our Making Investigations toolkits, a series by artist Beth Hopkins that offer processes, ideas and techniques to support you in developing your art practice.

Making and thinking as processes are important in Beth’s work where materials and ideas are often explored together. This second edition of Making Investigations is all about binding, what the act of binding might mean and how an object or space changes once it is bound.

No.2 Binding

“You will find your own techniques for working with found objects. The main way I work with them is to bind them. Binding has many cultural meanings, often associated with the physicality of our bodies, such as bandaging an injury. It can be an act of care or an act of restraint – sometimes it is both. For me, binding is both a way to protect an object and transform it into something new.”
