Light the touch paper

safety in numbers
numbers of possibilities
possibilities in abundance
abundance of nothing
nothing to declare
declare bankruptcy
bankruptcy court
court the dangers
danger in darkness
darkness to light
light the touch paper

Lawrence McGill

Detail of Lawrence McGill's embroidered poem

Armour is a six month project with homeless people focussing on veterans of armed service, developing creative ideas based on medieval armour. How can veterans live peacefully with the memory of war? How do we protect ourselves and the ones we love? We are re-thinking, re-examine, re-create quilted medieval armour, as garments embroidered with meditations on war and peace.
