During the vernal equinox, 2019, pieces of mulberry washi were made to line the window interior of a small South-facing barn in rural Northumberland. Between sunrise (6:12) and sunset (18:21) 96 sheets of washi were formed lining the 8 panelled window, slowly diffusing the light within while causing clear reflections of the sky on the exterior. Insects, cobwebs and chipping paint were sandwiched between the panes of glass and the damp paper. Removing the installation a month later revealed the traces of life and death captured in time.
