The challenge for the tufters in interpreting Garry Fabian Miller’s photographic work here was in translating the emanating light qualities of a Cibachrome print into wool. The key to achieving this successfully was to look at the effect of the image and to understand the artist’s intentions, rather than aiming merely to create a copy of the original image. In this way, The Golden Light rug is an interpretation of one artist’s work by another and results in an entirely new work altogether, rather than a reproduction.
