Digitilly and the Motherboard: a digital/IRL project
Craft Contemporary, Craft Vic, October 2020
Updates and live streaming time and location announcements at https://www.instagram.com/cipiincolour/
CiPi will be live streaming across a number of afternoon sessions during October the making of a digital being called Digitilly.
Digitilly will gradually come to life through the making of a costume and a large Motherboard quilt. Conversations based on techniques and the artwork’s concepts of Care, Digital Life and our Environment will be had. The live streamed sessions from CiPi’s Castlemaine studio will be a mix of sewing, pattern making, problem solving and discussion.
On the work table will be the makings of a Motherboard quilt that will form a vital connection for the creation of a superhero character Digitilly. She will need a costume (probably more than one) as well as a set of tools, possibly shoes, definitely a bag and absolutely a mask. CiPi will make these items as you visit the workshop virtually. CiPi is a graduate research student in Visual Arts at La Trobe University Bendigo.
She is interested in how an Ethic of Care might make incursions into the NeoLiberal world we live in, particularly now, in the time of Covid-19. As we are even more connected digitally and separated by distance and the wearing of masks, how will we grow, and make, a more connected healthy web of relationships? Join CiPi during these sessions to chat while making, ask questions and share knowledge.
Digitilly will be thrilled to meet you.
