Caitlin Thompson: Embroidermation: Stitches to Pixels

Thursday, March 11 - 12:00 PM

Focusing on her recent exhibition PANORAMADA, Thompson will share her research into embroidermation – the combination of embroidery and animation. Both processes rely on sequential bits of information (stitches and pixels) and provoke similar feelings.  Her research investigates the relationships between them as well as their histories and techniques.

Caitlin Thompson grew up in rural east-central Alberta and completed her BFA in Sculpture at Red Deer College and The Alberta College of Art + Design (2007). Caitlin moved to Montreal to pursue an MFA in Fibres and Material Practices from Concordia University (2015). She moved back to Alberta to complete the beneficial cycle of journeying and returning. While maintaining a studio practice, Caitlin also works as an arts educator and gallery preparator.
