Tracey Osborne uses objects which have already had a life, believing the history

embedded within the object contributes to the conversation. New things, things

without a history have no place in her lexicon.

In these particular works the words are laid out as they were posted on Facebook by

the young people Osborne works with; unedited, with no history or sub-text to give

them context. They are stitched on to school blazers which in themselves carry a

certain amount of social expectation.

The following two images show Tracey's work.
