Can we trap time in a material?

Untitled, 2009, © Rachael Polson, Thread and Fixings

This work became known as  “frozen calligraphy ” around art school, due to the trapped gestural movement inherent in the work.  Each form is wrapped in bright thread.  This is an attempt to trap time in the material by the repeated action of wrapping.
