Slow Fiber Studios events offer a platform for international scholars, artists and artisans to exchange knowledge and showcase their creativity and technical ingenuity.
Slow Fiber Studios’ 2017 event series Algorithmic Aesthetic will explore relationships between art, music, mathematics, and language by following threads of Islamic cultural heritage, weaving between the ancient and the contemporary, tradition and innovation.
Visiting Artist: Phil Webster
Phil Webster is a Santa Cruz-based artist trained in mathematics and cognitive science at MIT. His work, often employing contemporary technologies such as 3D-printing, laser-cutting, and dye sublimation, addresses the intersection of mathematical form and pattern with ancient design tradition.
