Abstract

The Fiber and Place seminar session explored the multi-sited nature of fiber, tracing lifecycles and ongoing histories to understand how cultural, social, economic, aesthetic, scientific and natural worlds are produced, transformed and engaged through fiber. Seminar participants identified themes shared across their various research projects, including: (1) phenomenology and ways of knowing; (2) aesthetics and design practice, (3) supply chains and “value”; (4) production/consumption in a transnational context; and (5) life cycle and seasonal cycles. In this paper, we present aspects of our seminar participants’ distinctive research projects and how they intersect with fiber, place and the aforementioned themes.
