Claire Williams is a digital artist from Brussels. With a Master’s in Textile Design from ENSAV La Cambre, she focuses on personal art projects and collaborates with other artists, engineers, hackers, and tinkerers. Claire Williams also gives lectures at art schools and regularly holds workshops related to her work.
Her projects mix open source textiles, floss software and hardware, hacked knitting machines, electronic and computational textiles… and form part of a more comprehensive look at how digital tools can be repurposed.
Her obsessions: collecting and expressing data through a combination of digital, audio, and textile languages.
The 13th Voix De Femmes Festival welcomes Claire Williams for one exhibition and three workshops (Textile Antennas, Sound Embroidery, and Data Knitting), in which textiles will be electronically modified to pick up what we can’t see and broadcast what we can’t hear. Quite a programme!
