What is Binding?
Binding is a process of working with recycled fabrics and cotton which transforms a flat piece of material into vines and floral impressions. The art form was developed by jewellery maker and fine artist Tanvi Kant passedon to Cherrelle Skeete of teh Fury Project. Click to visit Tanvi website - tanvikant.co.uk/.  

Binding and The Fury Project.
The act of "bind" in relation to the anger  is in itself is a sort of alchemy. The project works to change perceptions of anger as a completely negative and destructive force into a transformative fuel. We take a piece of fabric and transform it into something vibrant, useful and beautiful. In the sessions we share stories where  the energy or emotion of anger but shift the perspective to see how it could be used constructively rather than automatically view it as negative and destructive. In short, how it can be used to create and propel creativity in peoples lives.
We will also be using creative writing and poetry as an extra exploring the themes that arise during discussions.

Any stories that wished to be shared as part of the The Fury Project art installation will be contrbuted to The Fury Transformation Jukebox which will tour the UK in 2014. Click for more details.

Packing away the Transformation Tree

It was the last day of the Fury porjecy tree and before packing it down I had to hug it. It had been a taxing process but so invigorating and thought provoking, as so many people had left a imprint on the tree, sharing their stories, binding and then adding thier energy to the vines of the tree. 
Cherrelle and I ate a slap up Thai meal to celebrate. We sent Katie pictures of our food, and cyber High Fived her by text, while she choreographed  in sub zero conditions for the Russian Winter Games.  
And so The Fury Project get taste of what it feel like to be a concrete piece of visual art with film and stroy telling at a button from The Fury Transformation Jukebox.However, this is not the end of the project, nor the the final exhibiting and performance of the Tree. There is more to come. Watch this space. Zena 


Bonding 'n' Binding Sessions Continued - Evolutions

So we have been a-binding at Kings College as part of the Urban Dialogues Art installation commission we won from 3 Faiths forum. Some lovely little creations have been coming forth as we talk and connect about out experiences of anger as women.
The plan is to make an installation of an impression of a tree made from fabric and thread that houses  The Transforming Fury Jukebox loaded with 101 stories of people talking about their relationship with and perceptions of anger.  Right now, we are at the vine making stage.

What's been amazing about this work (fun) is  the confirmation that the installation is not about the tree and the vines intend to build as the finished piece; the installation IS the process, the act of making and sharing  these moments.


We've had open sessions for others to come and join us. Andrea came and did some binding while sharing a story about her disabled sister, who suffers from sickle cell  anemia being discriminated against and talked badly of at a …
