GAP Award 2005
Learn About GAP Award
Nöle Giulini received a 2005 GAP to support the research and development of a new body of work that incorporates growing Kombucha Culture and traditional felt making techniques. Funds assisted in the purchase of new materials, the cost of a felting class, as well as documentation of the project. “I seek to inquire into the nature of everyday household tools and appliances and our attempt to relate to and/or control (handle) them,” says Giulini. “I envision a process that begins with felting the exterior of these household objects and then cuts off the object so only the felt interpretation remains.”
