#MagicCarpet: Of wandering and weaving, of digits and the digital, of craft and craftiness
Thursday 30 January – Saturday 4 April
Whether it’s craft, creativity or the different ways our minds work that sparks your curiosity, everyone can be inspired by at our latest exhibition #MagicCarpet.
Artist and researcher Dr Kai Syng Tan’s work playfully explores the seams where art, science and mind wandering meet.
#MagicCarpet showcases a large-scale tapestry, digitally hand drawn and then woven by machine, threading together questions about the nature of making and the ways in which artists and scientists view neurodiversity.
Come and take a visual trip on #MagicCarpet to discover the connections Kai made through her work… let your mind wander and stitch together new connections of your own.
