‘The project ‘Blood on Silk ‘ was started in 2010 with the collaboration between Fiona Davies and the physicist the Late Dr Peter Domachuk. Peter was researching the biomedical uses of silk and its potential use as a means of determining blood properties and characteristics while still within the body. This raises issues of the materiality of blood and of silk, the economic impacts of biomedical developments, the trafficking of blood, blood products and people on the Silk Road and the long history of the study of silk in Georgia at the oldest silk museum in the world at Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia .’ Tony Bond OAM
