These are a couple of details from the amazing textile installation by anne wilson. Beyond their intrinsic beauty and compelling patterning, these pieces are part of a larger exploration of the intersection between craft and digital rendering, topography and organizational composition making. "In this new project, the webs and networks of found black lace are deconstructed to create large horizontal topographies, 'physical drawings' that are both complicated and delicate." "The computer affords another means of close observation: lace fragments are scanned, filtered, and printed out as paper images. These computer-mediated digital prints are then re-materialized by hand stitching and are placed in relationship to the found and re-made lace in the topography." Such a contemporary approach to the process of art making and in the end, such a stunning result.
