I find it really interesting to visit an exhibition were artists are working. It gives you a look into the thoughts of these artists. You can see the process.
“Published Workspaces”, I called them in my research.
Published Workspaces make people think, they activate the people’s creative minds. And I think that is a good thing.
In these Workspaces you are often involved in the work process, sometimes you can even help the artist.
In my research I am wondering about the intention of these Published Workspaces, and if they achieve their goals.

Last Sunday afternoon E-Group went back to the basics in the “Cooking and Constructing” exhibiting-event organised by Platform 21. Together with students from the Textile department and Heleen Klopper we tried to use vegetables as a source for printing and making.
This event took place after an introducing visit and small lecture on “text and textile” by Erik Wong and a visit and guided tour into the wonderfull World of Vlisco (Garenteed Dutch Wax) printed designs (dessins) exhibited in the Volkenkundig Museum in Leiden.
Textile can be used as a medium for direct communication as these examples clearly show.
