Intertwingled offers a disruptive interpretation of the interconnected world in which we live through rugs and tapestries.
The word 'intertwingled' was coined in 1960 by the American sociologist and philosopher Ted Nelson to define the complexity of the interconnections in the field of knowledge, made up of myriad cross-relationships. Embracing this vision, Intertwingled explores rugs and tapestries in the fields of art, craft, design. The book projects the rug into conceptual realms, establishing new relationships with ideas such as nomadism, real estate, visible and invisible networks, hypertext, decentralised power, non-linear narratives, and the inherent power in the concept of unity.
Based on the Intertwingled exhibition curated by Martí Guixé and Inga Knölke at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Rome.
