Sustainability Stories with the Solar Sewing Rover

Sustainability Series

Paul Nosa

  • Visual Artist

Visual artist and Arizona native Paul Nosa will join the ASU Art Museum and the Global Institute of Sustainability for a two- day sewing performance with his Solar Sewing Rover–a portable sewing machine powered by a solar panel or a bicycle with an electric generator. His performance is part of the opening weekend program for the "Crafting A Continuum: Rethinking Contemporary Craft" exhibition which opens on September 27, 2013 at the ASU Art Museum.

Paul will create original images, which are machine sewn on fabric patches, using word associations provided by our guests. Nosa wishes to inspire people’s creativity and to demonstrate alternative energy sources through his performances.
