In the Mood For Love – Wong Kar-Wai 2000
When I came out of the cinema I realised I was a hopeless romantic and wanted to tell a story through my work.
It is a restless moment.
She has kept her head lowered,
to give him a chance to come closer.
But he could not, for lack of courage.
She turns and walks away.
That era has passed.
Nothing that belonged to it exists any more.
He remembers those vanished years.
As though looking through a dusty window pane,
the past is something he could see, but not touch.
And everything he sees is blurred and indistinct.
The Digital Encounters exhibition hosted by the University for the Creative Arts will be the finale of the Moving Textiles exhibition series. Works can be made in response to the Digital Encounters Symposium which considered the transformative effect of digital design and production techniques on a range of textiles practices exploring the relationship between hand crafted and digital textile techniques. Along with work inspired by the symposium works may be created in response to the question ‘How do you see the future of textiles and its relationship to digital media?’
