Knitglitch’s blanket is on exhibition at Bunbury Regional Art Galleries for the holidays! Visit it in the Archive Room installation space upstairs.
This artwork was created as part of the Awesome Arts Creative Challenge 2015; a program where artists are placed in schools in remote and regional Western Australia. Knitglitch (Claire Pendrigh and Dan Macnish) worked with students in years 1 – 6 in Bunbury’s Djidi Djidi Aboriginal School for one week.
Blanket is a soft, interactive interpretation of the environment of Djidi Djidi Aboriginal School. It is a collaborative artwork made by all the students (totaling about 70) who were involved in the Creative Challenge 2015.
A series of soft sensors made from wool and conductive thread play sounds created by the students when pressed. Explore the Blanket to experience Djidi Djidi Aboriginal School through the eyes and ears of its young artists!
