How to Tie a Fly
Video (1 min. 42 sec.)
Royal College of Art, London
The video is a live exploration in the interaction of colour through the process of tying a fly. A fly is composed of a mix of materials, and as they tied to the hook, the colours intensify and interact with each other and the surroundings.
The significance of the fly is fascinating - as an object with a purpose - a tiny, beautiful, handcrafted weapon to catch fish, meticulously made, mostly by men, with colourful feathers, string and glitter.
