You’ll be asking yourself, “Is it a photograph or is it a tapestry?” at the exhibit “Bridge 11: Lia Cook.” Standing far away, you’ll think it’s a photo; standing up close, you’ll see the individual threads that make up the weaving. One of the images is Binary Traces: Young Girl, a close-up of a girl looking straight into the camera. Though it looks like an oversize photograph, it’s made of woven cotton.
Anna Walker, curator for the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, has called Cook “arguably one of the pioneers of the modern fiber movement,” in no small part because of her technique. She works with a digital loom, with each thread becoming a pixel of the photograph, mixing craft, technology, weaving and photography like no other artist participating in this year’s FotoFest. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, 12 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Through May 13. 4848 Main. For infor-mation, call 713-529-4848 or visit www.crafthouston.org. Free.
Fri., Feb. 3, 5:30-8 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Feb. 3. Continues through May 13, 2012
