Abstract or Description:

Projet CRYSALIS, Cité Internationale de la Dentelle et de la Mode,
‘Soundlace’ a commission from the Calais Lace Museum designed and created by BOUDICCA.
An interactive dress and sound system installation that reacts to its environment and is in connection with people; that if worn would be triggered by sensors positioned down the centre of the body and on the wrists and arms.

The contract has for object the creation of a textile piece from lace created by the City of Calais,
within the framework of the Crysalis project, produced on the International Center for Lace and
Fashion Leavers’s loom.
The CRYSALIS lace is the result of a cross-cultural approach merging the knowledge of historical hand-made lace pattern and new sources of inspiration. The lace refers to the Leavers loom for the pattern as well as Jacquard punch boards, the sound of the loom, and offers to play with materials.
Today, after having created the pattern, punched the specific cardboards, prepared the Leavers lace
machine n°7 and carried out the corrective phase and furthers tests on different materials, the lace is
being produced for future partnership creations.
The first dyed piece of lace is now available and the International Centre for Lace and Fashion (CIDM)
wish to value it with an artistic partnership. This piece will be presented at the CRYSALIS final event in Ronse, on the 27th of September 2014.
For that purpose, the International Center for Lace and Fashion appeals to Boudicca Couture.
