Robin Kang’s vivid fiber art examines our relationship with technology, both traditional and new. Active Circuit, commissioned by Arts Brookfield, presents nine weavings whose colorful patterns are inspired by vintage computer circuitry from the 1970’s and 80’s. Kang describes these weavings as chips, or components of information hardware. Each chip is activated by the energy of viewers passing through the exhibition. Activation in this instance however, becomes spiritual rather than physical.
