Translating Computer Algorithms into Tangible Fabrics


"Digital complexity is turned into the comforts of home in this new series by artist Phillip Stearns, which offers up for sale pillows, tapestries, and other cozy objects woven from textiles that reflect computational processes. Computational Textiles features dynamic fabrics that come in all sorts of warping and pixelated patterns; rather than imagined through sketches or other hand-drawn prototypes, these designs and forms were all created in code Stearns wrote and then woven together by a computerized Jacquard loom. The results technically relay data, although they appear as simple geometric patterns or even dreamy, painterly compositions."
