Helena, welcome back to the DWL! It missed you and your incredible knack for storytelling!
Weaving on: Lou
Joining us from: Cleveland, Ohio by Lake Erie
Tell us about yourself and what led you to the residency?
I love string, structures, and stories. Praxis is a hub for looms and community -- a unique location to focus deeply on projects and weaving explorations.
Have you had any previous experience with Digital Weaving or Jacquard?
Yes, I've woven jacquard textiles before -- thanks to Kent State University and Praxis Fiber Workshop.
Any goals for the residency you'd like to share?
~ Paint my warp with undersea imagery & dye skeins for weft.
~ Create a collaborative artwork with an oceanographer.
~ Explore whether warp & weft can be equals.
~ Weave delicate structures/patterns in 45 e.p.i. (ends per inch).
~ Design individual panels into a final single work of art.
