textiel factorij update

I am currently working on my part of the Textiel Factorij and have spent a few weeks in India doing research into the arts and crafts techniques used during the age of textile trade between the Netherlands and India. I have been working with craftspeople in Gujarat (Mata ni Pachedi artisans, who paint textiles used in the worship of Hindu goddesses, and who also use block printing to aid their production; Block-carvers in Pethapur; Digital fabrication expertise and the FabLab in Ahmedabad CEPT University.) The theme of my project is automation.

I have recently started a blog about my project Signature Print, and I still have a lot to document!

The artwork outcome of the project will be presented at Twentse Welle Museum (in Enschede, the Netherlands) in 2018. More info will follow!
