In this television segment from the 1970s Canadian show Arts '74, artist Evelyn Roth discusses her work in textiles. In the first clip, she shows how she uses videotape as a material for crocheted wearable sculptures (including one which fastens the viewer to a television set) and even a car cozy. Roth's costumes reminded me of those in Forcefield's videos, and her interiors echo a bit with some of Donna Huanca's stage installations and Jacqueline Gordon's Dream Blankets. Neat!
