# About

 

Working at the borders of science, technology, arts and textiles, Claire Williams sees her self as an artist and researcher that tries to work between these fields, finding a common language, creating and amplifying  specific interactions between different mediums. Her obsessions lay mostly around data, sound and ancient textiles, trying to materialise digital matter, imperceptible or inaudible informations found in our super saturated techno environment. She likes to work with unstable media, researching ways to create specific tools, usages or techniques to give us a sensitive experience of our daily environment. In her work she mainly uses textile techniques, hacked machines,  DIY electronics, open source software and hardware.

Claire Williams lives in Brussels. She graduated from ENSAV La Cambre with a master degree in Textile Design. In parallel to her art practise she organises, collaborates in collective projects. She has exhibited in Spain, France, Belgium, Holland and the U.K. and regularly gives workshops and exhibitions in art festivals, associations, cultural events, schools and museums on open source textiles, floss software & hardware, hacked knitting machines, electronic textiles and stories on analogue textile techniques.

Diplômée d’un master en Design Textile a l’ENSAV La Cambre, elle travaille actuellement sur des projets de recherche en tant qu’artiste et collabore avec d’autres artistes, bidouilleurs, hackers, bricoleurs, et associations locales. En gravitant autour du textile open source, floss software & hardware, des machines à tricoter hacké, du textile électronique et computationnelle. Ses obsessions tournent autour de la captations de données et leur matérialisation, des jeux entre langages numériques, sonores et textiles.
