ELSWORTHY WANG

2006

The Hespeler Public Library Textile Design competition invited textile artists and craftspeople to propose a large-scale textile drapery for the newly constructed Hespeler Public Library. Our proposal recalled local histories and natural and built environments in an a series of abstracted and magnified landscape images. The proposal also allowed an exploration of large scale custom digital weaving and knitting technolgy.

Our entry was selected as one of three finalists in the two-stage juried competition.
