ABSTRACT
The article reports on a project undertaken by five textile artists at the Müller Zell textile mill in Germany in August 1991. The artists, including Cynthia Shira, Lia Cook, and Sheila O'Hara, called it the Jacquard Project, with the aim of analyzing the possible uses for industrial technology in artistic production. The team enlisted the aid of technicians from Müller Zell, consultants from loom manufacturer Lindauer Dornier GmbH, and software engineers from GROSSE JAC Webereimaschinen GmbH and Fischer & Schlehofer OHG. The artists later said that the project taught them that industrial technology, especially computer-aided design, will affect their work. The article also mentions that art from this project was exhibited at the North Dakota Museum of Art in 1992.
