Data Lace at University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Library

Data Lace is an ethereal paper lace installation suspended in space at the UTS Library. The work engages with particular ephemera collected from a selected environment – a workplace.  Through a series of walking expeditions from a design office to the administration floor, shredded office documents were collected and transformed into a contemporary paper lace work. Fragments of texts, symbols, dates and numbers are re-imagined as a new material system – a Data Lace.

The paper lace installation is accompanied by an artist talk with Textile Artist Cecilia Heffer and Visual Communications Designer Zoë Sadokierski. Together they will talk about their practice, ongoing collaborations in creating artist books, investigations into alternative forms of publications and present their joint publication, Lace Narratives: A Monograph 2005-2015, funded by UTS Library.

Details: Wednesday 27 September – Friday 3 November, opening hours are 7am – 1am daily for UTS students and staff and 8am – 10pm for the public. Opening event and artist talk, Wednesday 11 October 5–7pm, with artist’s talk starting at 6pm sharp.
