Weaving Intentions

Danièle Hromek on October 6, 2018

Weaving Intentions, created as part of Hromek’s PhD research, is an object woven with intention and pensive speculation, where the weaver becomes connected to history and future, kin and Country. Woven into the object are words, conversations, ideas and thoughts, captured through the energetic exchange of making into the form. Stories, histories and life are encased in the shape, as is cultural reclamation of a weaving cultural practice. Intentions informs and even forms the shape of the object, embodying and imbibing these idioms and carrying them perpetually.
