Video: Textile Conference Talk @ SFSU

By  | 

Back in 2010, I was invited to speak about my ongoing Changing Clothes project at the Reinvention textile conference, which was a real treat. In this 20-minute presentation, I tell one of my favorite stories about an Indonesian rice boat, among other true tales and musings. I also share conceptual considerations and show lots of pictures. The talk was part of a panel discussion titled “Environmental Art: Can Art Make a Difference?” I answer that question with a wholehearted “yes.”

The conference was sponsored by the Surface Design Association, Studio Art Quilt Associates, and San Francisco State University. Thanks to all of these organizations and the wonderful attendees for the opportunity to share my thoughts!

Lea Redmond is always looking for the poem hiding inside things: a salt shaker, a clothes tag, a hand gesture, a cloud. She is infinitely intrigued by the way experiences can slip from the ordinary to the extraordinary and she endeavors to design things that hold this possibility. Leafcutter Designs, her creative studio in Berkeley, CA, makes the world more playful and peaceful one little experience at a time.
