Digital Encounters open to the public 13th June- 24th July at UCA Canterbury

The Digital Encounters exhibition hosted by the University for the Creative Arts will be the finale of the Moving Textiles exhibition series. Works can be made in response to the Digital Encounters Symposium which considered the transformative effect of digital design and production techniques on a range of textiles practices exploring the relationship between hand crafted and digital textile techniques. Along with work inspired by the symposium works may be created in response to the question ‘How do you see the future of textiles and its relationship to digital media?’ Work may be produced by established professionals or up-and-coming designers from across different visual arts, using a range of media or mediums. In addition examples of work made as part of the Crysalis – the revival of textiles project, will be exhibited to celebrate the juxtaposition of digital textiles design alongside hand crafted textiles and heritage.
