Unseen – felt on canvass

Design source

Damage to the central nervous system often includes symptoms that remain unseen – pain, fatigue and numbness. Not many have experienced the anguish of dealing with adults and children who suffer in this way. In this felt the words are laminated between fine layers of merino and each letter is defined with a range of materials. The fibres selected are a personal representation of the sensory problem covered by the word itself.
