About

Weaving DNA is a collaboration between the Icelandic product designer, Hanna Dà ­s Whitehead and Scottish Textile Designer, Claire Anderson. They re-appropriate traditional Nordic and Scottish textiles, examining the ways in which these represent and shape aspects of national identity. The duo explores the potential to create a common material identity drawing on the Nordic/Scottish regions shared cultural, historical and geographical roots. Together they forecast the identity of a futuristic Nordic-Scottish tribe, inspired by its Viking heritage. The Nordic—Scottish tribe emphasises the artists shared influences, as well as DIY conceptual strategies that favour the spirit of immediacy, craftsmanship and sustainability. They provoke Scottish and international audiences to reflect on their identities, suggesting visions of cultural fusion and evolution.
