cable knots club is a participatory performance and workshop, presented as part of the cable knots project. cable knot [booklet] is an illustrated artist book that accompanies the workshop.

cable knots (2014-present) is a series that plays with traditional and contemporary cultural practices. The work is ongoing and cumulative, combining performance, sculpture, and craft. The knots adhere to traditional Chinese knot templates, and are tied from used electronics cables. The project explores intersections between cultural knowledge, memory, technology and materiality.
