# Data_Knits

2013/2016

EN Data Knits is a serie of continuous research experimenting on how a textile can become a place to store and memorize data. By finding a common ground that links computational practices and textiles, physical and digital data is translated and encoded into a tangible textile pattern. Programming tools are used to generate algorithms that create infinite combinations of simple forms and describe complex behaviours of nature and systems.

 

«The analytical engine, she said, will weave algebraic patterns like jacquard looms weave flowers and leaves”.
 Ada Lovelace, 1842
 
 FR Data Knits est une série d’explorations continuelles qui vise a traduire, générer et encoder des donnés au sein d’une surface textile. En partant des points communs reliant la programmation informatique et le textile, des donnés sensibles ou digitales sont traduites pour former des motifs ou structures matèrialisés au sein d’un textile.
 
«La machine analytique tissera des motifs algébriques comme les métiers de Jacquard tissent des fleurs
et des feuilles».
 Ada Lovelace, 1842

goto 10 scarf


10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10

A code that generates a sequence of / and \ in a random way creating an endless loop in which the pattern never repeats.
