The Material Turn Symposium
The Material Codes project and the Textiles and Materiality Research Cluster co-hosts a one day symposium at Milieux to facilitate international and intergenerational conversations around contemporary textile practices in the digital information age. In particular, the ways in which the materiality of digital technologies are interpreted and translated by artists who mine, question and transform diverse data sources through expanded textile approaches. Artists and students will present their research and creative responses to questions of digital futures, surveillance, cultural translations, social data mining, and materializing invisible systems.
The day will include a keynote, artist talks with moderated conversations, demonstrations, small group discussions on symposium themes, a plenary and a closing reception.
