Fibre artist Lia Cook talks about her jacquard loom. Lia is a featured artist in the
Crossroads episode, premiering on PBS starting 16 November 2012.
Lia Cook has been at the forefront of the intersection of craft and art, where she has recently melded techniques of 18th c. Jacquard weaving with an inquiry into brain functioning, thus combining the most basic manual technology with contemporary technology and scientific practice. Her unusual mix of old and new has garnered her international recognition.
