As part of the Florilege project, I am creating a manuscript of embroidered, illustrated and collaged               research and texts which explore the relationship between histories of medicine and food.                         Participants in the workshop 'Sewing, Eating, & Knowledge-Formation' (click the link to find out all the details and context) contributed to this manuscript, and for the exhibition I created an embroidered version of a previous text Nerve Storms which was originally published in Orlando Magazine. You can see both of these in the slider galleries below. 

The manuscript is still ongoing. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed so far.
