Schering en Inslag: collectie zomer 2019Wefts and warps: collection summer 2019Trames et Chaînes: collection été 2019

Warp and weft are weaving terms, which Constant uses to weave stories about and in-between different projects. A warp refers to the thread stretched on a loom. On the Constant website, warps are extensions of projects, often ways to navigate to and through documentation, media and notes. The weft is the thread that runs between the warp threads with the help of a coil. At Constant, wefts are thematic stories that establish relationships between different projects.
