A Thread That Never Breaks

A Thread That Never Breaks is a virtual art exhibition that presents artworks by seven Indigenous artists in fashion, craft and textiles. Artist Meghann O’Brien has described her woven textiles and baskets as threads that connect to ancestral knowledge. Visualizing the strong connections between generations as the literal threads in garments inspired A Thread That Never Breaks. Transmediation is the term for bringing an artwork from one medium to another. In A Thread That Never Breaks, the works have been transmediated from physical threads into pixels, polygons and lines of code that you can experience through your avatar at AbTeC Gallery
