Use of Traditional Techniques


Contemporary art and design works that make use of traditional techniques, a tendency that spans global cultures and includes a wide range of experiments with materials and imagery. Examples include the incorporation of calligraphy into paintings and the use of embroidery or weaving, for instance, in the textile works of Alighiero e Boetti or the digitally spun tapestries of Pae White. These works often blur the boundary between art and craft, representing a hybrid of cultural traditions.
