Tibetan Rug Weaving
Wool Rug, Work in Progress
I began an exploration into my Iranian culture and familial lineage of rug importers and craftswomen through the hands-on exercise of producing these traditional textiles. Though this current process is Tibetan, I wish to learn Persian as well, in order to eventually create pieces using various fibers and materials including human hair, conductive yarn, and electronic sensors (i.e. haptic feedback). This practice will inform work in combining craft and stealth technologies.
