Kari Dyrdal: ”Invisible Continuity – a self presentation on digital woven images and public commissioned works”

Norwegian Kari Dyrdal is a textile artist and professor of art at Bergen Academy of Art and Design

She works with large tapestries in a historical tradition, but uses new digital tools and utilities in the planning phase and her production. All her work place themselves between representation and abstraction, reality and illusion. She uses photos and transforms images to textile surfaces, where patterns and repetitions, color and materials are essential.

The lecture is held in english.

Making / Narratives: Jan Rothuizen

Visual artist Jan Rothuizen (1968) is mapping reality in a way that is difficult to define. He draws and describes his surroundings: always personal but never fictional.

Sometimes descriptive but more often documentary. With his hand-drawn plans he presents his stories in a way that fits surprisingly well with how we process information in the digital age: non-lineair and layered. 

This open lecture is a part of Making / Narratives: The Design Lecture Series Spring 2015 at HDK. Welcome!
