Mop head conversations / 26 November 2012

I have transcribed the notes people wrote during my 2 days in the city centre.  I thought about how I was going to print these onto the mop and after experiementation, decided on printing using typed text and transferred onto material using 'magic touch' paper.  

I was pleased how well the text appeared on the material.  I dismantled a purchased thread mophead and used the  material mop holder to tie in my 'new' mop thought threads to make my 'thought mop'!!!

I have intermingled blank threads with the printed threads and wanted them to appear 'hidden' and printed the text so it looks like the thoughts have been 'mopped up' and absorbed by each thread.
