ATLAS Colloquium: Victoria Manganiello and Nicole Yi Messier on Craftwork

Title: Craftwork: A Textile & Technology Studio

Abstract:  Craftwork is a multidisciplinary design and art studio exploring the nature of textiles and technology through storytelling, material-based research and installations. Our broad-based skill set focuses on creative technologies, textile fabrication, and novel materials explored through historical and cultural contexts. We intentionally engage in experimental techniques in both the physical and digital realms, frequently intertwined. During this talk, we will share studio projects, our process, and discuss the reasons why we are working with textiles and technology.


Nicole Yi Messier, partner  |  Victoria Manganiello, partner

With a combined more than 20 years of experience, Victoria and Nicole founded Craftwork as a space to realize experimental projects across a diverse range of mediums. Their backgrounds span art, architecture, academia, design, engineering, museums, research, technology and science. Combining historical fascination with forward-looking materiality, their skills in traditional textile crafts with emerging technologies bring together large-scale, dynamic projects with a variety of partners and contributors.
