This paper explores some of the philosophical, political and visual questions being considered in my current creative practice-led research. I will unpack how my artwork is grappling with a complex entanglement of ideas and images through notions of journeying, multiplicity, enfolding and knotting. Like all entanglements the ideas and images are fluid sometimes reflecting, sometimes repeating and sometimes conflicting themselves. The threads, shreds, strings and lines of thought and material, are intimately entwined in a web or nest of possibility, and much uncertainty. I often grapple with the order in which to tell the story. Like the way we set out for a particular kind of walk; the paths we choose are sometimes motivated by the bigger questions that drive us, and sometimes the intimate and tactile that embrace us.
