  • Product Description

This work uses Computer Aided Design (CAD) to create contemporary textile designs inspired by a particular culture, that of Nubia before the mass relocation of the 1960s, while maintaining the rich symbolic meanings of its motifs. It centres on methods for exploring cultural loss and recovery and uses theoretical and practice-based investigation, including interviews and fieldwork, to try to understand the way of life, beliefs, and experiences which informed the woven - created art of the Nubian people before their emigration. The book discusses the practical work and the advantages of CAD . It demonstrates innovative ways of retaining elements of Nubian visual culture within the Postmodern era and of educating new generations of Nubians about their heritage, thus encouraging its preservation. Unusually, this research brings together anthropological research and art, the object being to combine elements of cultural study and theory, anthropological fieldwork, visual and creative work, and interactive audience research to produce a creative space where Nubian art and culture can be appreciated, preserved and developed
