Spinning World

Visual Arts - Solo Exhibition


Type Of Work


  • Visual Arts - Solo Exhibition

Abstract


  • Spinning World (世界を紡ぐ) is a multi-sensory project incorporating textiles, electronics and graphene. MAAS Research Fellows Dr Agnieszka Golda and Dr Jo Law investigated historical Japanese textiles from the Museum’s collection and have created a new artwork that explores the relationship between art, emerging technologies and ecology.

    The installation makes use of traditional Japanese metallic-thread embroidery techniques to incorporate new materials developed at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science, such as graphene and intelligent polymer, to embed micro-electronic circuitry into the fabric. These elements will enable programmable sound, lights and movement that respond to visitors’ presence via sensors in the space.
