Associate Professor Qin de Qing, TCD Visiting Scholar from Qingdao University, China
Associate Professor Qin de Qing ("Gina"), Vice Dean in the Department of Textile and Fashion Design at Qingdao University in China, recently settled into TCD as a visiting scholar for a semester-long residency. Professor Qin's research and creative work emphasizes fiber art and the transformation of specific fabrics into 3-d structural forms, and this will be the area on which she focuses during her time on the UNL campus. Gina's work combines art and technology, fiber and metals, tradition and innovation, and she plans to use the residency opportunity to push it to the next creative level.
Professor Qin is working with Professor Wendy Weiss in TCD's surface design studios, and will interact with other faculty and with students throughout the semester. Professor Qin de Qing's visit reflects TCD's continuing objective to build strong relationships with Asian nations, the locus of much textile and apparel production and distribution. Welcome Professor Qin de Qing!
