Weaving is one of the oldest technologies, but this statement fails to describe the intimacy that exists between these terms. Though this connection is neglected inside of hierarchies that reject the historicization of a practice with an embedded relationship to femininity, labour, and craft, a thread running parallel to human life can be glimpsed sedimented within the linguistic biography of the word technology itself. Teks, the Proto-Indo-European root of the english word technology, means to weave. In a space where they have not yet deviated, framing weaving as a technology becomes redundant, and presupposed categorical arrangements are loosened.
The first technology was also the first technology to be taken over by machines - and the Jacquard looms role, both as the first industrialized technology of the industrial revolution & as a foundational model for the transmission of information in binary terms, affix textiles within an ever relevant timeline. This linked history offers textiles as a medium uniquely suited to explore assumptions about contemporary spaces of interaction. Tie It Off & Count Again presents artists who have created contemporary textile work that make tangible these immaterial, virtual, and personal realms.

The Hamilton Audio Visual Node (HAVN) is dedicated to supporting the development, exhibition, documentation, and dispersal of sound, images, and ideas through the programming of experimental and innovative art forms created by emerging and diverse groups of artists. We are a space, arts collective, and curatorial group striving to create and present the art of culturally diverse artists, as well as support performance, media, and sound-based works that do not fit within institutional structures.
*HAVN operates within an anti-oppression framework and all are welcome. There is one gender-neutral bathroom. Unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
Curated by Rowan Lynch, towards the competition of a BFA thesis in Criticism and Curatorial Studies at OCADU.
