Practice based textile outcomes

Kenny, Polly (2011) Practice based textile outcomes. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Kenny, Polly

Production of practice based textile outcomes continued and developed from earlier research outcomes exploring digital textile processes in relation to the mark of the hand. This is related to TFRC outcomes and personal submissions to national/international exhibitions.

Recent collaborative research has produced contemporary womenswear incorporating digital textile design and articulates ideas emerging in response to memory and the exploration of the archive. The work develops from an international collaborative project eCHO with Queensland University of Technology that explored the relationship between the garment form, purpose and surface textile design. This project allowed for close study of selected items of clothing from Australia categorised as ‘lost and degraded', worn through age and repeated laundering, and allowed the opportunity to produce work that is a synthesis of contemporary and historical sources. The implications of ‘handing down', the repair and alterations evidenced were important qualities, evoking the passage of time, embedded memory and the fragility and vulnerability of textiles. The work explores traditional hand processes, the mark of the hand, translated through a diverse range of techniques, combining digital and non-digital technology.
