PUBLIC TALK: Friday talk with SymbioticA resident artist Amy Congdon
Friday talk with SymbioticA resident artist Amy Congdon
Date: 7 Oct 2011
Venue: SymbioticA HQ
Speaker: Amy Congdon
Current resident Amy Congdon will be talking about a selection of her previous projects and research interests. As well as this she will be reflecting on her experiences so far as a resident and how this has changed and expanded her ideas. Working with completely embroidered scaffolds and primarily skin cells Amy's current work focuses on the intersection of textiles and the body.
Amy Congdon is a textile designer whose work revolves around the blurring of roles that is occurring between science and design. Having completed a BA in Contemporary Textiles she went on to graduate in 2011 from the MA Textile Futures course at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London.
An embroiderer by training she has a particular research interest in the use of traditional textile techniques being re-appropriated into new areas, most specifically the use of digital embroidery to produce medical implants. Amy’s practice falls within the category of critical design, in that it seeks to create work intended to provoke debate around the crafting of materials from living matter and whether we are reaching a stage where the body is becoming the ultimate luxury commodity.
