Pete Ippel

I discuss revivalist trends in art with relationship to the hand-made and folk tradition, specifically in fiber arts. Innovative artists, having digital fluency, easily navigate networked communities and collaborate openly. By comparing pixels to patchwork, vectors to stitches, bitmaps to patterns, and layers to quilts, they investigate the overlap among a variety of disciplines.
