Curiosity. Serendipity. Intent. Chance. These are the elements of life, artistic practice, and travel. A journey, with its goals, challenges, and epiphanies, can often stand as the central analogy for what an artisan is seeking in their daily studio work. Travel itself can be the experience that drives our artistic motion. Join Lisa Klakulak, founder of STRONGFELT, as she retraces marked encounters from India to Morocco, Russia, Mali, Norway, Australia, and Chile. Lisa will talk about the places, cultures, objects, and phenomena that have shifted her perception, instigated technical experimentation, and resulted in unique concepts and ways of working felt. The insights from her approach to travel go far beyond any single textile technique to embrace the larger ideas of home, journeys, perception, and inspiration.
