The art pieces in this exhibition explore the aesthetic relationship between photographic images of flowing water and organic motifs found in the Nottingham Trent University Lace Archive. The practice-led research is focused on how digital technology can be applied and subverted to interpret abstract concepts, such as light and fluidity, to generate new textile narratives that celebrate space and form. The utilization of the characteristics of lace act as both a historical link and metaphor, restoring connections with craft, skilled workmanship and nature.
