Pamela Liou is a computational designer, artist and writer who examines the tensions between craftsmanship, technology, and commerce, to reveal the hidden socio-economical infrastructures undergirding the global garment industry. Through examination of supply chain, market design and digital fabrication, Liou’s work offers alternative modalities for production and distribution through the combination of digital and physical toolmaking.
In the Artist Studios, Liou is further developing her Doti Project, a desktop Jacquard loom that leverages digital fabrication to enable expressive textile production at home and encourages broader design literacy. Liou is focusing on creating a corpus of woven pieces with the loom showing the capabilities of the machine and getting visitor feedback.
Liou received her MFA from New York University’s ITP program and also received her BFA in Dramatic Writing at New York University. She has an active studio practice and works as a design consultant. For more information please visit her website: www.pamelaliou.com
