Timewarp

There seems to be a shift from the tactile towards the visual experience. Digitalization speeds up processes. Visual information seems to be faster than tactile information. What will get priority in our experience of the world ? Weaving is a very slow process, even on a computerized loom.There is a tension between making this slow work and the fast world around me. I weave time.

The intelligence of the hand

Artistic research in two projects: 

Stitch Your Brain and

Weeflab in Amsterdam, founded in 2016. 

Weaving, taken out of its traditional context is a contemporary artform. Weaving has an intellectual and a manual side, applying the material knowledge of hands, imagination and digital technology. The hand is the interface and in this way the weaver is a protagonist of our times, especially in the experience of time itself.
