If the last entry on the Seamless show got you wondering what else is out there (by the way, be on the lookout for an article about it in the next KnitKnit, by crochetlab’s Linda Scharf), check out the new exhibit at NYC’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum: Extreme Textiles. It’s on display 8 April – 30 October 2005. From their site:
Extreme Textiles explores the extraordinary innovations occurring in “technical textiles,” and shows how they are revolutionizing the fields of architecture, apparel, medicine, transportation, aerospace, and the environment.
And you thought textiles were just about fashion…
By the way — a big hello to Christine Liu, who I knew in my Boston days, and who also had work in the Seamless show. Isn’t it funny how few degrees of separation there are among knitters and other artisans?
