Fiber & Material Studies

When you gaze into your closet, the clothing that you choose for the day shapes your identity to the world. White netting, black lace, hand-beaded silk and camouflage twill, we know the vocabulary of these things.
Fiber and material studies is a media-rich field, deeply woven into everyday life. The coded language of textiles eloquently describes matters of identity, gender, status and ethnicity. Artists working in fiber and material studies challenge the belief that sight is the primary sense. Touch is also an important way of knowing - a powerful, tactile path to knowledge. Questions of technique and material mingle closely with questions of ideology and symbolism, creating discourse that inevitably encompasses cultural and social anthropology, history, science, architecture, linguistics, poetry and design.
