Narrating textile construction: Amplifying traces of making in hand-woven cloth
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis questions whether the hand-woven textile could be used as a site for aesthetically expressing the spatial, temporal and personal aspects of construction. By examining cloth-making processes across sites in Australia and Bangladesh, the weaving act is revealed as an explicit and implicit marker of space, time, and the person behind it. This project provides a framework for designers that privileges material as a conduit for connections between designer, maker and user.
