Songs of Labour - Dances of Death, cut out

Songs of Labour – Dragon speaks
From January till April 2020 I had been working on a new version of a rotating shadowlamp.
This process was a feast of handicraft. Especially during the days of the Corona lockdown the process of designing and cutting became my mental retreat from stress and anxiety. The work is infused by my fascination for German folk craft from the mountain region Erzgebirge.
Interesting enough those craft men and women had been starting after their work in the mines and households this handicraft with whole families in their homes as an extra source of income.
