Coded Clothes: Having been revitalized from a former cotton spinning mill, The Mills in Tsuen Wan has always focused its programme on textile, and always in surprising ways: their new exhibition Interweaving Poetic Code explores the journey of coding in textile.
Did you know? When coding was first developed in the 19th century, it was used to develop algorithms for textile machinery.
Renowned educator, writer, artist and activist Taeyoon Choi is artistic director for the exhibition, and he is passionate about incorporating coding systems with humanity for care and inclusivity. The exhibition will showcase some of his practices, including textual drawings, paintings, and documentation of his past performance pieces.
As part of the exhibition, local collective Queer Reads Library will curate a special reading display at CHAT lounge. The co-founders will also be leading a discussion on their selection on Sunday, June 13.
Where? CHAT, The Mills, 45 Pak Tin Par Street, Tsuen Wan
When? May 1 to July 18, 2021
