Theremin tapestry progress report

Alex working on the tapestry

Visitors to the Chicks on Speed exhibition Viva La Craft! may have noticed a large tapestry, and reegular visitors might have noticed its steady growth. The tapestry is an ongoing project that is being slowly woven by members of the Victorian Tapestry Workshop. Featuring an original Chicks on Speed design, the tapestry is actually in the process of becoming a theremin tapestry.

Upon completion, it will be sent to the Theremin Institute in Moscow where the finishing touches will be done (or to be technically specific, it's where the 'interfacing and circuitry will be completed'). The tapestry will form part of the Chicks on Speed band.

With only 2 weeks left in the exhibition, stay tuned for more updates on the status of the tapestry.

Here's hoping they'll get it done in time!

In the meantime, have a read of this lovely interview conducted by Beat Magazine where the Chicks talk more about the tapestry, among other things.
