SEE IT | Faig Ahmed's Glitched Out Textiles
We've curated the best swipe-stopping content inspired by digital age creativity to help you stay relevant.
"Source Code" is the title of artist Faig Ahmed's exhibition at Sapar Contemporary in New York City. Utilizing a traditional loom, Ahmed's textiles are altered with a contemporary visual language, pixelating and distorting the initial pattern. Ahmed says his fascination with ancient languages inspired "Source Code." He sees textiles as a medium of communication, a craft that codifies art, history, and tradition into fabric. We're going crazy over this blend of raw and rich Eastern heritage with the glitchy treatment of digital age alteration. "Source Code," opens at Sapar Contemporary in Lower Manhattan on Thursday, November 17th.
