Stitched lines form a strange diagrammatic scroll of imagined walking, and also a personal barometric reading of a period of lockdown. The dimensions reflect both a high and low tidal range at Lamorran, Cornwall, a place previously visited for research into the manufacture of China Clay and Ultramarine. These are approximate tidal measures, a rule of thumb 'law of twelfths'.
