In Small Scale City Skirt from PechaKucha Night Coventry Vol. 26, Textile Artist Julia O'Connell talks about taking time to look carefully at details.

Here she talks about her commission for the City Arcadia project, where she is working up her Small Scale City Skirt as a way of making the city wearable.
