STRING THEORY///Pattern Pattern @ Graven Feather

Last Saturday I stopped by Graven Feather Studio to attend the opening of Pattern Pattern, by String Theory as a part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival. If you are not familiar with their work, Meghan and Lysanne collaborate between Toronto and Montreal to make gorgeous knitted and woven textiles that reference natural and man made patterns and systems. Here is some more info on the exhibition, as well as some images from the opening. I really regret that I brought my point in shoot to the show, instead of the dslr, as the images could have been soo much better, but I will be sure to bring it next time! Also, if you happen to be around Queen & Shaw over the course of the weekend, take a moment to stop in, see the show and check out Graven Feather's amazing print studio! They will be hosting a series of events and programming over the course of design week, so check it out!

STRING THEORY / Pattern Pattern
January 18 - 26, 2014
Opening reception: Saturday, January 18, 6-9pm
STRING THEORY is a partnership between textile designers Lysanne Latulippe and Meghan Price. The duo’s scarves and shawls are made from fabrics designed and produced in low runs with the help North American mills. By fusing digital design and production with the expertise only handwork can bring, STRING THEORY produces contemporary textiles that meet the traditional standards of their craft.
As constructed textile designers Lysanne and Meghan work with the math and physics of fibres, yarns, knitting and weaving to develop structure, pattern and texture. The name STRING THEORY is borrowed from a theory of physics that says the world is made of vibrating strings.
With ‘patternpattern’, STRING THEORY revel in and reveal their methods for designing knit and woven textiles. Here, process becomes pattern and a collection of scarves is presented within walls that describe their making.
