Museum exhibit

The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD)  KNITTING NATION Phase 15: Weaving Walls, a time-based installation and live labor performance by textile artist and designer Liz Collins. 
Collins and a "factory crew" of six professional weaving artists and designers transformed the Museum's atrium and lobby into a knitting and weaving factory, creating a continuous soft wall that will climb the Museum stairwell as the day progressed. 

The performance explored the dynamic relationship between textile and architecture, performance and collectivity, and considers apparel manufacturing and human labor.
