OUTSIDE: ACTIVATING CLOTH TO ENHANCE THE WAY WE LIVE. Ed. by Penny Macbeth and Claire Barber. Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2014. 148 pp. with 35 ills. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781443856959 In English.
Publisher's description: Outside: Activating Cloth to Enhance the Way We Live explores cloth's value, relevance and impact on societies today, recognising the constantly evolving fields of expression, often sited beyond art mediated contexts. The book explores cloth's potential as a metaphor for consciousness, a carrier of narrative, and a catalyst for community empathy and cohesion. Invited curators, philosophers, artists and scholars employ a variety of didactic styles that include the conversational, metaphoric, process-orientated, poetic, and autobiographical. Each author takes their line of enquiry to the next on a unique journey that probes a range of empathetic modes of investigation and expression. Through collective, rhetoric and practice-based investigation, the value of cloth and community in everyday lives is disclosed.
