My Travellers’ Blankets started out as an exploration of the concept of memory and travel – each scrap of fabric identified a certain point of a journey.  I tried to put myself in the mind of some of the great travellers of the past like Marco Polo; if you did not have writing how would you remember the journey? I am also aware that many of the journeys thus undertaken were not only in the spirit of discovery but also in the spirit of espionage or even theft, like the smuggling of silk worms.
