Featuring: Teresa Shields
Trending Threads is an interactive installation, by Teresa Shields that compares and contrasts the immediacy and impulsiveness of a tweet to the thoughtful interactions with one another. Show attendees will be able to move 4 x 4-inch character blocks around a modular, handcrafted board in order to spell out their own giant fiber tweet. They will be encouraged to snap a photo and post it to social media with #trendingthreads. As the first resident fiber artist at Abington Art Center, it took Teresa over a year to hand embroider each letter and character, a strong contrast to the fast paced world of tweeting.
Opening Reception: September 14, 6-8 p.m.
