FEMUFACTURE explores the hybrid space between traditional crafting techniques and digital fabrication technologies through the works of Japanese and Australian designers. Made from different mediums, the experimental works presented in the exhibition encompass different modes of making from weaving to generative coding and non-human ecosystems. Some works are still at the early stages in their experimentation.
The exhibition also considers the experimental application of technology by female practitioners leveraging traditional crafting sensibilities to inform future forms of production. The exhibiting practitioners Masako Ban, Rina Bernabei and Kelly Freeman, Belinda Dunstan, Patricia Flanagan, Aki Inomata, and Erina Kashihara are female contemporary practitioners at the forefront of their field.
