Craft Research is the first peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to the development and advance of contemporary craft practice and theory through research. The aim of Craft Research is to advocate and promote current and emerging craft research, including research into materials, processes, methods, concepts and aesthetics.
A selection of Gabi´s work of the past years was featured in a visual essay. The editors, Rowan Bailey and Katherine Townsend write in their introductory essay 'Craft and the handmade: Making the intangible visible':
"Gabi Schillig presents a visual essay of her own artistic practice, showcasing handmade processes alongside the final outcomes of specific works. Entitled 'On Skins, Membranes and Folds' Schillig explores the creation processes within these artistic activities in terms of the potential for textiles to operate as a second skin, which can mediate and restructure our relationship and interaction with the world. This is shown through an exploration of different tactile dimensions and spatial situations in open spaces."
