Abundance of Nothing

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 working on his Armour design

Armour is a project that uses words and stitches to explore the ways we protect ourselves. It is a collaboration with veterans of armed conflict and with people who have lived experience of homelessness. We asked people to describe their personal "armour", physical and mental. Artworks inspired by gambesons, the quilted jackets worn under suits of armour, were made out of rust dyed fabric and embroidered with poems, and other writings.
