Closing in 2017

  • Spiral Textile

Deadline: April 21, 2017. The goal of this project is to investigate the pattern as a textile design by integrating Karanis artifacts with experimental archaeology. This project represents an opportunity for ‘open source’ public engagement by inviting textile practitioners from around the world to produce the repeating pattern using textile techniques and materials found at the archeological site. Following guidelines on our website, registered participants submit work samples along with a questionnaire describing their chaîne opératoire. Juried samples will be exhibited in various locations including University of Michigan and the Austrian National Library so that visitors can experience textile properties on a first-hand basis.
