Although, each of my artworks give me abundance of happiness, Project 1336 is extra special for me. One day I saw a group of women knitting together in a small courtyard and sharing their life stories. Witnessing them laugh, enjoy and work at the same time, I decided to design Project 1336. I realised knitting has a connection to life. Similar to the threads, life is never straight; it has its ups and downs. This installation art has 1336m long multicoloured woollen ropes. It is the result of the contribution of many people especially women who have helped in knitting it together. I feel this artwork has made people smile.
