Weeflab in Amsterdam Noord
profiles ‘weaving’ as a concept: a combination of skills, networking and research in an open platform. It showcases the weaver as the protagonist of our times. It explores contemporary issues in a long term project, focussing on actual making and critical reflection.

Weeflab is based on a sustainable agenda

Manual skills:
weaving on hand- and computer-controlled looms
translating into serial and industrial work
printmaking - silkscreen
material sensitivity
dexterity

Informed by a hybrid background
of art - science:
spatial weaving - anatomy
layered prints - 3D growth
textiles - tissue
grids - microscope
networking - communication

 Research

Practice-based investigation about the hand-brain-axis and neurocognitive aspects in creative making.

Key-words:
The intelligence of the hand
Stitch Your Brain project

Two sets of inquiries
1. The importance of making with your hands and the possible effects on the brain and well-being.
2. The influence of medical images on body-identity
