Pattern, Textiles & Fashion on Film

Quentin Jones for Kenzo Pre-Fall 2012

You may have noticed here recently that the Slow Textiles Group embrace animation and film narratives for textiles. This is because textiles manifest time and story-telling in their very DNA.  Even digital code is textiles inasmuchas each pixel echoes the needlepoint stitch or punchcard hole in order to make the image whole.

Last year we showcased amazing textile animator Tania Grace Knuckey’s witty, subtle and evocative textile animations at the Slow Studio Cinema. “I have to put timelines into textiles to bring them alive,” she says.

Have a look through London designer Quentin Jones amazing sequences and visit the Slow Studio on April 20th to see more of this inspirational genre!

We are delighted to announce that over the next few months we are running a collective research project incorporating several Slow Textiles Group members dedicated to an exploration of the geometric form in textiles.
All our workshops, including those on May 19th, July 14th and November 3rd 2012 are dedicated to the theme as well as our exciting first group shows. 
Papers, essays and short films are also being produced on the subject, so watch this space or join us to get involved.

What do geometrics mean to you?
