noun a thread or filament from which a vegetable tissue, mineral substance, or textile is formed
The word fibre has many different meanings and connotations:
a natural or synthetic filament that may be spun into yarn, or used in fibre optics;
it is the narrow elongated thick-walled cell used to create our muscle fibre.
It has also come to represent notions of a moral adhesive, binding and uniting our social groups in times of crisis.
Fibre is a new long term investigation by Verd de gris arts into notions of connectivity. Weaving together threads of creativity (both physically and virtually) with sound artist and composer Nina Perry, poet Katie Atkinson and the women from our One Voice group, we will explore what it means to be connected.
