Weaving Climate Datascapes Workshop with Tali Weinberg

Artist Tali Weinberg will lead 15 graduate students in a workshop
materializing climate data in the form of woven tapestries.
Participants will use basic weaving skills to produce tapestries by
hand, experiment with ways to engage data while weaving and reflect
on the unique valences of weaving for engaging with and archiving
climate data.  Participants will also use the Lab’s
computer-controlled TC2 loom to create a collaborative tapestry
representing climate data as well as personal recollections.

The NEST-sponsored workshop will take place in the Unstable Design Lab
at the ATLAS Institute and will guide participants through translating
data into woven structures using hand and computer-controlled looms.
Priority registration will be given to CU Boulder graduate students, and the public is
encouraged to engage in Tali’s existing Woven Datascapes at the CU Art
Museum’s Documenting Change exhibition.

No prior weaving experience is required,  and all materials will be
provided to participants. There is no fee for participation.
