Cathy Hsiao


I am passionate about fiber, textiles and surface design as extraordinary mediums through which to explore our relationship with materials and processes at its most foundational level. Textiles, fibers and the animal and vegetal life that produce them become the substrate upon which entire histories of aesthetics have been written, and that is where I enjoy starting. Therefore I am committed to creating as much as possible my own fibers and my own dyes as well as extending the connection between the natural dyes and food in order to highlight what it really entails to process with technologies both ancient and new the materiality of the natural world.
