Strike Off

Antonia McDonald
100% digitally printed silk scarf
The pattern on Strike Off is developed from McDonald’s work ‘The Destroyed Ordinary’ in which she used high explosives to cause damage to a handmade woollen jumper. The garment made on a domestic knitting machine represents societies and communities at peace whilst the damage caused by the explosives is a visual reminder of the physical and psychological impact caused by weapons and the people who use them.
