This piece by Charlotte Walters is part of the BA Hons Fine Art project Wunderkammer

Time, Fabric, thread
Charlotte says: The 'museum' conveys the passing of time by exhibiting artefacts gathered over many years and communicating our personal, social and cultural histories. Traditionally samplers have marked the passing of time, they were used to celebrate special occasions, births, christenings and marriages.

As a contemporary revision of this I have created a series of embroideries using modern fonts based on comments from family and friends on what they believed ‘Time’ to be.
