Knitting Machine Installation

Knitting machine installation exhibited at the Redchurch Gallery, London, with the Bartlett school of Architecture Unit 14. The installation was composed of hacked Knitting machine toys which were automated and programmed to interact with visitors. The devices were calibrated to record visitor-machine interactions via continuous and destructive knit patterns. Over the course of the exhibition fabric columns grew, spilling onto the gallery floor, creating a new topography and terrain of experience that was encoded with the tangible richness of previous visitor interactions.
