dc.description.abstract This body of work can be situated within an emergent field of cross-disciplinary practice between design and art that employs conceptual and technical strategies from each in order to extend critical dialogue. More specifically, it can be located alongside design practices that have arisen in the last decade within the field of fashion that combine conceptual thinking, craft and design and whose processes arise from the material-based, technical concerns of craft to imagine new possibilities for the designed object. The focus of the project was the idea of creative practice itself. Drawing on the serial and repetitive nature inherent in textile practice (e.g. processes such as knitting, weaving and beading), this project investigated the idea of 'production' through a repetitive or process based system. The notion of the series, a concept central to contemporary (art based) practice, was also used. The installation comprised a number of differently sized sculptural components. Each component however was 'fabricated', rather than constructed, by hand by threading a number of similar articulated or jointed elements which formed a flexible 'material' which could then be 'draped'. The difference evident in each outcome highlighted the role of contingency in the process of 'hand' making. In recent years, 'craft' has been largely absent from contemporary design and art dialogues. By highlighting the contingency of the handmade, the work draws attention to the importance of understanding the role of experiential and embodied knowledge within creative practice and suggests a reconsideration of the relationship between 'craft' and conceptual thinking within contemporary design practices. en_US
