In her artistic practice Felicity Ford AKA Felix works with digital recordings of everyday sounds. In some projects these sounds are combined with hand-knitting. Felix began merging knitting with sounds while studying for an MA in Sonic Art & Composition at Oxford Brookes University and attending a local knitting group – The Oxford Bluestockings. She created her first knitted speaker system in 2007. Her practice lies at the intersection of craft and art and she is especially interested in using sounds to amplify and celebrate women’s history, and to explore the politics and textures of daily life.
