Fashioning Diaspora Space: Moving Patterns

Moving Patterns was an artists' installation at the Royal Geographical Society shown from 7–21 May 2009.

The work bore witness to the way in which pattern and ornament are laden with meaning and memory in both colonial and post-colonial times. It was produced by Helen Scalway, a visual artist based in the Department of Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London, as part of a large, long term interdisciplinary project, ‘Fashioning Diaspora Space’, with the Victoria & Albert Museum, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
