As the digital age advances, artists and industry alike must consider the possibility of digital textiles. Entangled in both narratives of past and future, what terms define this ethereal artifact? What does the evolution of textiles from analog to digital media imply or reveal about our own march through time? The artworks featured in this exhibition— woven with light and numbers yet dependent on human presence for their significance—point to the complexity of these questions and begin to elicit new vocabulary for a more hybrid materiality.
