In this work, I carefully split the cotton fibres of used bedsheets and cast the pulp into sheets of paper. It is a slow and tedious process of breaking apart in order to be able to translate into something new. Text relates to texture and textile traces back to “texo” – to weave. The surface of the papers is a form of writing: finely spun sentences written by sleep – a state in which a body succumbs to its own materiality.
