When I first arrived in the city, I had a lot of problems with the neighbours as I'd get up early in the morning and start sawing wood to make stretchers for canvas. Very quickly I realized I'd better stop that, and so I began to work with garden wire netting to build forms that turned out to be robust and light.
The main advantage was that it was a relatively silent process - the disadvantage being it took much longer to do.
This piece was a combination of the old process (stretched canvas) inside and outside the 'new' wire frame.
I liked the result - not only the finished work, but that the neighbours too became less hostile.
