Day 2

Installed in Garden B: Friday 13th August 2021. Approx. 3pm

Thursday 26th August 2021. Approx.11am

Changes noted: The panel presumably with the weight of more water absorbed into the cloth, had sagged further into the water. Garden B hosts noted that the water in the pond had increased due to rain. The calico fabric at the bottom of the panel has become stained with pond water. After photographing the work I decided to tighten the washing line and thus hoist up the panel again leaving, as before, a small section of the panel draped into the water. I expect it will gradually sink again. The fabric has also accrued some pond debris.

Garden B hosts also noted that fraying fabric threads had caught around the lilies located behind the textile panel. They had made the decision to cut the threads. Some thread remained around the lilies.
