Barbara Shawcroft – ‘Meditation Space’ 1974

Barbara Shawcroft’s crochet installation titled ‘Meditation Space’ uses textiles to create a calming and comfortable space. Gaps either side allows the viewer to climb through a passage, similar to what reminds me of a children’s playground. But Shawcroft has used soft materials to crate this piece, something which is very warming and comforting for the viewer. Once you are immersed by the soft textures around you, it is very relaxing and an interesting space to collect your thoughts, hence the particularly sensible name ‘Meditation Space’.
