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. Schering en inslag zijn weverstermen, die Constant gebruikt om verhalen te weven bij en tussen verschillende projecten. Schering verwijst naar de op het weefgetouw gespannen draden. Op deze website gaat het om documentatie rond bestaande projecten. De inslag is de draad die met behulp van een spoel tussen de scheringdraden door gaat. Inslag zijn thematische verhalen die relaties leggen tussen verschillende projecten.La trame et la chaîne sont des termes de tissage que Constant utilise pour tisser des histoires sur et entre différents projets. La trame fait référence aux fils tendus sur le métier à tisser. Sur ce site web, les trames collectent de la documentation sur des projets existants. La chaîne est le fil qui passe entre les fils de trame à l’aide d’une bobine. Les chaînes sont donc des histoires thématiques qui établissent des relations entre différents projets.
