From this series of social interventions, she developed a collection of digitally embroidered fabrics inspired by her encounters and the site. Awosile tests how craft innovation might help to bridge the gap between a younger generation of digital natives and those brought up before the digital age – people who might be more familiar with hand-crafted techniques. During her time at Thornwood she used a combination of tactile and conversational approaches to gather ideas that she translated into colour, form and texture. Through this reflective approach, Awosile used the architecture of the De La Warr Pavilion to create an arrangement of textile objects which explore moments of re-discovery and unfamiliarity. Garment silhouettes embody personal dialogues that, in turn, create opportunities for social exchange, touching on the silent interplay between public and private space.
