Graduated from York University with a BFA in studio art, Marianne Burlew employs the technique of crochet in her work as a catalyst between the body and technology. Focusing on the idea of the interface as a mediator for identity through the experience of space and objects, she works to elevate crochet from a craft practice to a sensorial communication and biographical body. Marianne’s works include both technological bodies with which to interact, as well as Skins with which to experience. Marianne works in various materials and techniques including craft, installation and performance. She is currently working as an Artist in Residence in the Textile Studio at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto.
