Raw & Co Gallery, Cleveland Ohio, U.S.
The following text and images are a transcription of the presentation, made by Jennifer Wright to the conference Touch, Textiles and Technology, held at Goldsmiths College in London during September 2007:
To conclude this presentation I would briefly like to focus on the development of one specific body of work generated within my own practice, as a way of reflecting upon some of the speculative possibilities and implications of interacting with information through the technologies of the virtual . This is a work, that does not literally incorporate new technologies into its material manifestation, but can be interpreted to engage its audience through utilising qualities that work both by analogy, through reference to the ‘everyday’ experience of these interactions, particularly those experienced within the domestic interior and by ‘affect’, achieved through deliberate, autonomous transformations of materials through process, which emphasise the phenomenal qualities of colour, light and haptic perception of some very different materials.
The work itself formed an installation called Alight Here, and was exhibited in the Raw & Co Gallery, Cleveland Ohio last year.
