(Kairotic.org) What are the historical and theoretical points at which the practice of weaving and computer programming connect? What insights can be gained if we bring these activities together, through live-shared experience? How do digital technologies influence our ways of making?
We pursue these questions in the Weaving Codes- Coding Weaves project, by investigating patterns from the perspectives of weaving and music, and by developing a computer language and code for describing the construction of weaves. Ancient looms in this context are seen as early digital art machines that prefigured concepts of dyadic arithmetic and logic.
