Research Collaborations and Projects
Textiles and Materiality Research Cluster at Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture, and Technology at Concordia University brings together research creation expertise from textile arts and material culture to experiment with methods, processes and interdisciplinary modes of thinking that will shape the future of textiles, material objects and charged experiential spaces.
Material Codes: Ephemeral Traces visually explores the relationship between digital data, scale, trustworthiness and fallibility thorough the medium of woven textiles, while also investigating mutual benefits of closer connections between fine arts textile practices and industrial production methods, and promoting multiple creative collaborations.
The Material Turn Project is an exhibition and symposium taking place in March 2018 at Concordia University, Montreal. This series of events will encourage scholarship, build critical dialogue, and showcase visual artifacts created around the theme of materializing data through textiles.
