A Journey into Velvet
A collaboration with Dr Ana Cabrera (Textile Archaeologist) June 2017A fragmented looped video installation celebrating a collaboration with textile archaeologist Dr Ana Cabrera and artist-engineer Diana Scarborough
This artwork, inspired by Ana’s research project ‘Interwoven’ based at the V&A Museum, London, plays with the concept of forensic investigation, creativity and cross-disciplinarity of art-science thinking by both practitioners. An interplay of visual and sound sources amplify this thinking and intense colours play homage to the luxurious nature of velvet, its materiality, alchemy, history and technology. https://www.vam.ac.uk/research/projects/interwoven
