Kathleen Smith

The work I make focuses on creating public art and craft objects that inform, entertain or educate. This is through narrative usually focusing on local stories based on place. My work focuses on Places. The history, memories and stories that happened there or a narrative of what is happening there now. I search for little known stories and create a permanent record of them, through stand alone or wearable objects. These objects create a repository for knowledge, before the stories become lost forever. The narrative is meticulously researched reviewing books, newspaper articles, photographs, conversations, museums and through visiting the places where the narrative happened.
