Own our own time IV - One hour Borås
Own Our own time IV was performed at the Textile Museum of Borås, Sweden, in October 2015.
The yarn used in all the performances included in the project Own Our own time have had a direct link to the different places. Boras is a city with a long textile history, where mills and dye houses were located along the river Viskan. For The performance in Borås a special yarn was produced to the event on the old spinning machines that are preserved at the Textile Museum http://textilmuseet.se/ . Viktoria Holmqvist from the museum dyed the yarn at the Swedish School of Textiles http://www.hb.se/Textilhogskolan/ with the help the dyeing unit AHIBA. Many beautiful colours were produced to document one hour Boras.
