Stories Textiles Tell

Automatic Writing Workshop

In Fall of 2013 I was a part of a Artistic Research Inquiry course at Konstfack University. We created series of workshops to research textiles and methods of artistic research in general. 

I prepared Automatic writing workshop. Touching textiles presents an enormous sensory stimulation for me, I always wondered how do others perceive it.

The workshop started with each participant bringing a piece of textile. One by one, textiles were put on the table, felt for 1 minute and then participants were instructed to automatically write - record any thoughts coming to them in that moment, without censorship. The purpose of this workshop is explore our conscious and subconscious connections to textiles.
