Kim McCollum

Kim McCollum’s work explores relationships between digital and analog, old and new, hand and machine. As technology advances and our world shifts towards the digital, society is losing the tacit and material knowledge formed by making things by hand. McCollum’s work explores how ancient craft practices and contemporary technology are inextricably linked. Using the structure of the grid, she investigates visual relationships between weaving patterns and digital space. Reconsidering the value of ancient craft techniques has potential to revitalize contemporary experience and influence our collective future. 

McCollum holds an MFA and MSc from the University of Alberta and is a creator of networks within local craft and arts communities in Edmonton, connecting people and ideas through her work as an artist, organizing events, and working as an educator. She also co-owns Gather Textiles, a workshop space and community building initiative.
