Imaging Project

Hello and welcome back! Now that the move is over, I have been looking for other HLATC projects to share with you here. One of our big projects for the next couple of years is to work on a backlog of imaging. It is a great advantage that our temporary storage space has a separate area spacious enough to allow us to continue photographing the collection. New images, in addition to scans of previously taken slides, will allow us to bring more of our collection to you through our online digital collection. I thought you all might enjoy it if I featured some of the pieces we photograph here on the blog. Do I hear a resounding yes?

It seems fitting to begin with a piece, LPUS427, designed and created by Helen Louise Allen herself. It is an experimental weaving from the 1960s, created as a sort of sampler of different weaving techniques. Made from bast fibers, the piece has an almost rope like texture.
