I had the distinct pleasure of helping some friends from NYC work on their project for the TechStyle installation at the Quilt museum in San Jose. Actually I just ended up doing some trouble shooting and some tech wrangling.
The woven fiber optics are connected to information from the web to create patterns.
I did for the first time get the “overqualified” feeling helping out a fellow artist. Not saying anything about their work at all, but putting myself into the role of a tech makes others look at you strange, no I am not the tech. I am an artist helping my fellows out.
Quilt and Jane are super awesome and I love them. I hope they can survive while I am in Portland for the next 4 days.
