In March 2014, the Museum de Kantfabriek (Lace Factory Museum) opened their Traditie ontmoet Toekomst (Tradition meets The Future) exhibition. The exhibition focuses on the combination of smart fabrics with traditional textile techniques and our dresses are showcased along with many beautiful works.
We’re especially pleased to be included in the collection, because of course the Lace Sensor dresses would not exist if it wasn’t for the Lace Factory Museum. They were involved in the very beginning of our exploration into conductive laces, custom-producing our lace on their beautiful old machines. The museum, located in Horst, The Netherlands, is a treat to visit even when they don’t have a special exhibition on, but if you can make it before the end of September 2014, you’ll catch the Traditie ontmoet Toekomst exhibition as well. Worth a visit!
I visited today and the exhibition was both beautiful and thought provoking, I’m so glad I had the chance to see it.
I’ve just stumbled across this project (late to the party!) and must tell you, it has taken my breath away. An absolute genius weaving together of “women’s work,” women’s thoughts, art and technology. Please oh please tour this to Los Angeles someday! #bigfan
