This project was a research project into our connection with our tools in both a manual and digital form. The aim was to create computer generated textiles combining the two worlds. Along my journey I found that there are many points of intervention from the artist, designer or inventor when using digital tools to the point where I fell out of favour with the term ‘computer generated’.
These pieces are based on images I generated with code based on the work of Anni Albers, they look so different as I developed my weaving skills but this highlights how pieces can be so different from the same computer generated image.
The above are 2 variations of an image created from AI generated weaving patterns. They were made as part of a plan for a scarf and are shown here to appreciate each stage in the making process and highlight the changes between digital and physical.
