Born in Lexington, Kentucky, Robin Johnston lives and works in Asheville, North Carolina.  She holds an MFA in Textiles from California College of the Arts and a BFA from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia.  Robin’s work deals with measuring time, capturing moments as they pass, and the sense of loss that accompanies their passing. Information such as light, temperature and heart rate is collected and tracked during the making, creating real-time maps of her physical experience weaving.  The levels of translation involved in the charting and integration of various data into the woven structure add to the slowness of the process, illustrating a personal reaction to fast-paced society.
