Abstract

This chapter is a visual discussion of the relationship between my spatial and education practice, concentrating on the translation of practice‐led knowledge into a new set of teaching methods and learning outcomes. Both in making artwork and teaching, I delimit spatial, material and technical parameters which create the possibilities for knowledge to be emergent, and to be spatially perceived and conceived through forms of weaving. The weaving maps or traces movement in space. It becomes responsive and performative revealing tensions and unisons between haptic, intuitive and analytical thinking. This process is explored in the chapter through annotated visual examples. Initially discussing the spatial 'problems' and architectural stimuli that directed the conception, creation and presentation of the work Before the after commissioned for Melbourne Now (2013‐14) at the National Gallery of Victoria, including reflections on public engagement as an indication of the work's success. Then detailing collaborative and individual tasks from workshops hosted by the ANU Textile department. While the chapter functions as documentation and analysis, it also conveys a poetic tension of spatial practice as it is being both crafted and discovered.
