Nancy Feve – Recombinant Art Quilts – an exhibition organised by Bonnie Cotier

Bonnie was an inspirational person and the exhibition detailed below is a fine example of how she used her skills to enrich and promote someone’s talent.

QR Quilt by Nancy Feve

Text by Lindsay
“The late Bonnie Cotier was struck by the patterns of QR Codes and encouraged her friend and colleague Nancy Feve, a quilt expert, to design a quilt that is a functional QR Code.

The quilts will be on show at Williams Art, 5 Dales Brewery, Gwydir Street, Cambridge on Tuesday 7 June 5pm-8pm. Tel: 01223 311687. http://www.williamsart.co.uk

Bonnie designed Nancy’s website and was helping Nancy to organise the event and act as media contact. Her friend and colleague, Michelle French, has stepped in on behalf of Bonnie to make sure that the event is a success.

“Bonnie did an experiment with Cam Creative last year using QR Codes. At the time there were very few people in the group who were aware of them. I had become intrigued with them when the design firm in London, Moving Brands, presented a case study in a lecture at London College of Communication.

Bonnie and I both have backgrounds in sewing and the cultures of the Southeast US and I was very excited about the combination of low-tech, craft art with the high tech application. (“High Tech/High Touch” example for a John Naisbitt enthusiast.)

While the circumstances of my most recent involvement in pushing this show forward have been among the saddest of my life, I have been very glad to contribute.

Nancy is accepting commissions should you want your own QR code stitched into a quilt.”

Please make others aware of the exhibition and if you’re in Cambridge please go and view the exhibition.
