3D to 2D: thinking about fabric print differently

LPT stumbled across a project the other day that we found particularly exciting. In November 2010, at the University of North Carolina, USA artist Jennifer E Price gathered together a team of student volunteers.

Taking a Dodge Caravan, a 6 metre by 13 metre piece of cotton muslin fabric and a whole lot of printing ink, the team created a piece reminiscent of psychiatric inkblots or flat-pack paper toys.

This was produced for Jennifer E Price’s exhibition held within the University’s student union gallery in December.

Watch the full film of the making process below:

About London Printworks Trust

London Printworks Trust is the centre of excellence for textile print. Our passion has continued for twenty years since establishing ourselves as a charity to encourage professional artists, designers and emerging talent to learn, to share ideas, to produce new work and to fulfil their creative potential.

We are developing a new programme of residency places, courses, talks and new open access in response to the changes to funding. We appreciate and thank the support from our Board, Volunteers and Freelancers, without whom we would not have survived the changes to our funding. Continued support from The Leverhulme Trust and Lambeth also helps us to make a difference.

  1. Thank you for posting about my work. I am currently back in London and pestering funding agencies to give me a limousine to print. Great website. Thanks again. Jenn
