Textiles, like cinema, are visual and spatial texts that serve as a sequential record of time. Both mediums are intrinsically given to narrative and whether they are constructed frame by frame or stitch by stitch, they each tell stories through incremental and procedural processes. Join Kate Nartker, assistant professor of textile design at the Wilson College of Textiles at NC State, for a discussion about how textiles and cinema inform one another through process, form and narrative and the historical and contemporary artists working within these points of connection. She will share an introduction to her studio practice and talk about how these ideas provide a framework for her work. In sharing her work, she will identify connections between disparate fields as generative sources that expand creative practices. Her work further demonstrates the value and contributions that a craft-based framework can bring to the fields of film and visual storytelling, giving new ways to approach moving images and visualization.
