Break Factor is an immersive installation that will use costume, sound and moving image to explore the ways in which contemporary textiles can be presented and manipulated to incorporate performance within a gallery setting.
Showcasing the collaboration between 3rd Year BA (Hons) Fashion Textile students and industry practitioners such as fashion designer Louise Gray and set designer Sarah McNabb, the exhibition will pay close attention to the quality and purpose of textile and how best to achieve enduring pieces that will withstand the intensity of both movement and application.
Taking textile art away from its traditional modes of display, visitors can expect to see a number of hand-made 3D sculptures and installations of moving image that will work in cohesion with the sound design and performance.
