This video connects women’s work and formal histories of abstraction with digital technology. For this piece, I transferred historical textile documentary films to video and edited laboring hands, film leader and film credits into 35 layers that form a triangle quilt in motion. Displayed looping on an Ultra-high-definition monitor, the piece ruminates on the roles of materiality and tactility in a technologically mediated future.
