Amazonian Lines

In earlier crits associations to rivers have been made to my work. 

I have since looked into the passages of water in landscapes and have now begun to appreciate their appearance from above. 
I have looked in many books to see how the lines connect and weave in and out of each other. Its like a traffic light system, the rivers know where to merge and where to break off and make it's own paths. 

The Amazon River is the most impressive river channel in the world and can be seen clearly from out of space.

This is the image that I will use in my current and final work of year 1.

I will draw the main water ways, running to the smaller tributaries in pencil onto the dissolvable material and then use my sewing machine to add the lines. 

I would like to slowly dissolve the backing material by using funnels with filters, leaving only thread that once represented the biggest river in the world, destroyed by a few drips of water. 
It will be a time based piece, much like the other ephemeral work I have produced this year.
