the velvet project

As of June 2023, I am exploring how velvet hand-weaving’s slow, tactile intimacy can be communicated through digital technologies. Over the course of three years I will be diving deep into the depths of velvet, aiming to externalise a deeply internalised process and create a knowable experience of velvet weaving.

Here is where I keep diary-based updates, covering the progress, hiccups and inspiration of the project.

This three-year artistic research possible is part of the DiGiTal programme, funded by the BCP and housed at the Wearable Computing department at the Universität der Künste in Berlin.
