Lace Installation designed for the 14th International Tapestry Triennial which is the oldest and one of the most prestigious International Textile Triennials in the world. Participation in the International Tapestry Triennial, Lodz, Poland is by invitation only. Through a controlled Programming Board the Museum invites National Cultural Consultants from each country to select three works. For the 2013 Triennial Valerie Kirk, Head of Textiles at the Australian National University Canberra, was asked to be Australias national consultant. I was invited along with artists Gabriella Hegyes and Treahna Hamm to represent Australia in this event. The exhibition showcased one hundred and twenty artists representing fifty countries. My research contribution to this field lies in the unique lace technique I have developed together with the integration of digital photographic imagery. The digital print has been embedded into the lace structure and demonstrates the potential to develop alternative ways to develop lace pattern. The integration of printed image into the lace making process is a new unique approach that has the potential to extend how lace design motifs are produced.
