Virtual Knitting
knitting in physical and virtual space | 2008-09

 

Knit cloth is tangibly constructed from series of knit and purl stitches.  Code is constructed from intangible sets of zeros and ones.  Here users are able to knit in both physical and virtual space at the same time, constructing both tangible and intangible cloth.  The motion of interacting with the knitting needles as an input device for the computer  references other of my works that relate to human/ machine interaction.
