Tlingit Superman Series with Teri Rofkar

Artist Teri Rofkar will share three woven pieces that explore the contemporary relationship between art and science. The Tlingit Superman Series is a project that weaves modern composite materials into traditional Tlingit regalia. The series features the first all mountain goat robe made in over 200 years, that also illustrates the DNA sequence of the mountain goats themselves. Other pieces in the series include regalia made out of Kevlar, programmable fiberoptics, and nanocarbon fiber. Rofkar's work provides commentary on the political and cultural landscapes of indigenous people today.
