String Theory will be a weekend event for artists and scientists interested in exploring connections between art and science and fiber. We will experiment with:

  • Observing fiber through microscopes
  • Responsible collection of specimens, museum practices (e.g. collection management of herbarium specimens, insect collections) and their use in fiber art
  • Plant identification walks, nature journaling
  • Firefly outing
  • Moth party
  • Ecoprinting
  • Natural dyes
  • Math of crochet, knitting, stitching, weaving, knotting, netting
  • Using fiber to translate data and communicate science narratives
  • Other fun stuff
