We Make Carpets

BY MARCIA NOLTE
@ VOL 13 ON FEB 24, 2015

Speaker Marcia Nolte discusses WE MAKE CARPETS, a buisness that does not make carpets. At least, not the kind of carpet you can walk on. Still, one of the visitors of the Dutch Design Week 2010 stepped all over Fork Carpet.

The carpets are not meant to be touched either. But it sometimes happens anyway. ‘Muisjes’ Carpet suddenly had an imprint of a finger. A visitor nibbled on Candybar Carpet. 

But to glue everything down or put an art barrier around it? No. That doesn’t fit with the work. From a distance it may look like a carpet but you have to come close to see it is actually made of clothes pegs. Or some other everyday product.

Paper Making in Japan

BY REBECCA PRY
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 25, 2017

"They gave us certificates of mastering the art of paper making but then they quickly clarified that we didn't actually master it because it takes years to do so..."

In "Paper Making in Japan" from PechaKucha Night Warwick Vol. 1, Rebecca Pry shares her story of how she learned to make traditional Japanese paper, washi, while at the Awagami paper making factory in Tokushima, Japan.

Rebecca is a young artist living and working in Warwick, NY. Her work is heavily inspired by the patterns and imagery created by nature and her surroundings. Her designs have been published in books and magazines and have been printed on apparel, accessories, home goods, and stationery.

Wardrobe Overhaul : A feminist statement

BY RUBY BOUSSARD
@ VOL 20 ON APR 19, 2017

Ruby Boussard is a visual artist and a recycle nut.  Ruby promotes awareness of waste in our environment through her art and by running recycled craft workshops for adults and children.  Ruby is fascinated by three dimensional construction techniques and how diverse materials can be made wearable.  Here Ruby sets herself the challenge of redesigning/recycling her entire wardrobe.  The resulting portfolio of photographs is a feminist statement about reclaiming the female image from a women’s point of view.  Spoiler alert – this has nothing to do with make-up, styling or air-brushing, and everything to do with feeling happy in your own skin.
