Clio Windust is a textile artist working primarily in printing and weaving. She is interested in the role textiles has played in the development of modern technologies and media arts, both in the realm of computers, with the Jacquard loom as a proto-computer, and with the craft of fabric transparencies, a part of early media in the 18th and 19th centuries. By exploring how textiles fits into this history she hopes to create work that captures the same sense of animation and life created by illuminated images on a screen. She holds a Bachelor of Craft and Design from Sheridan College (2022).
Clio was accepted as an Artist-in-Residence (Textiles) at Harbourfront Centre in 2022.
