Interactive Tapestry Weaving Exhibition

So last week I delivered my interactive tapestry weaving for exhibition at Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre in Cwmbran, South Wales. I have also now set up my loom with my current tapestry on it which I will be working on during the exhibition.

The opening for the exhibition is on Friday 24th June between 5 and 7 pm and all are welcome. I will be in the gallery on Saturdays and Mondays to work on my current interactive tapestry but please confirm I will be there if you are planning on a visit and expect me to be there. The exhibition continues until 20th August.

Some of the tapestries are interactive through touch or proximity which will trigger audio clips, others use QR codes to link to soundscapes I have developed for those tapestries. Other pieces are interactive through touch which simply creates movement in the work itself. Come along and enjoy!

Fabric of the North

I just managed to fit in the installation of my two interactive tapestries to the Fabric of the North exhibition before the current Covid-19 lockdown started in Wales. The exhibition is at Kirkleatham Hall Museum in Redcar until 31st January, 2021 and outside of the lockdown in England which is starting today for a month, viewing the exhibition is by booking a time slot during their opening hours.

Until the lockdown is past you can watch the video above and also view the individual works on the Fabric of the North website.

Thanks to the Arts Council of Wales National Lottery stabilisation fund grant I received and an a-n Artists Information Company Artists Bursary award, I was able to update the touch sensitive weaving of Metamorphosis to proximity sensitivity and also update the technology used in my other tapestry in the exhibition, INTERCONNECTION.

Supported by an Artists Bursary from a-n The Artists Information Company and a Stabilisation Fund grant from the Arts Council of Wales National Lottery Good Causes.
