This is a detail of the hanging.   I was printing on gut as a metaphor for ageing human skin, gut looks fragile and frail but it has enormous strength.  
I had great fun doing this, my butcher was intrigued at me asking for so much sausage skin, he kept asking how many sausages are you going to make?    I had to tell him it was for art - so in the end I took in a piece I had done without the printing for them to see and feel.  At first I would ask for it in metres and then cottoned on that if I asked for it by weight it would be much easier for them, after all it wasn't a fabric shop.
