These projects address the emotional in textiles.
They aim to create emotional piquance and durability in artefacts that embody participation, feeling, effect and experience.
They present the opportunity for addressing artefact as container.
If you are interested in psychology and textiles (ie textiles as veil, membrane, second skin, inside/outside, internal/external, hidden/displayed, conscious/unconscious mark-making and narrative, a means to define/map space and structure, emotive container, symbolic mediator, etc) and their meeting place then these projects will be additionally illuminating.
