Coded Textile Design by Michelle Stephens

This is textile artist Michelle Stephens’s most recent work. She’s written computer code to manipulate traditional textile patterns into new reanimated patterns for print and weave.

The images show how the work started from a traditional pattern,  changed to a coded print design–and then changed back into woven cloth that appears to be ‘glitched’.

The videos are of the woven cloth made only a few weeks ago and is due to be exhibited in the next month.

BIOGRAPHY:

Michelle Stephens graduated from the University of Ulster, Belfast with First Class Honours from her B.A. (Hons) in Fine and Applied Arts, specialising in Textile Art in 2010. Following this, Stephens was offered a place on the “+1 Hons “ Programme at the University – an artist in residence programme.

Upon completion of this Stephens was accepted onto the ‘making it’ programme with Craft NI 2011-2013 and as a result of the work completed on this programme she is now a member of internationally recognised ‘Sixty Two Group of Textile Artists”.

CURRENT PRACTICE:

A defining characteristic of her work has been the sustained commitment to the conceptual synthesis of contemporary technology and historical textile sources. Currently her work involves the examination of technology as a design tool by using the coding language of processing as a method of reanimating the traditional textile patterns of Paradise Mill, Macclesfield into woven jacquard cloths.
