"Love Letter"

After the “A Gift of Necklace to Autumn”, this piece of work is a continuation, made with a hand-knitted scarf and a love letter received at the Valentine’s Day. 

Sometimes speech is too hard for us to express our love and emotions, it’s way easier to use symbols, textures and time to convey messages instead.

I tried to translate the words in the letter into Morse code. From stitch to stitch via embroidery, the message is subtly concealed between the metal gauze. It feels like re-experiencing the time of knitting the scarf, pacing the similar rhythm to feel her thoughts.
