Description

Doti is an open-source desktop Jacquard loom—a tool to enable craftspeople to render their ideas with expression and repeatability. Doti is the product of the artist's lifelong fascination with weaving and toolmaking. Pamela Liou began her career as practicing craftsperson, specializing in the integration of textiles and metalwork. Eventually she embraced technology as a means to further her craft practice. Existing computerized Jacquard looms are hardly accessible and an expensive tool for individuals. To bridge the gap between traditional hand-weaving looms and their unobtainable, automated cousins, the Dot-Matrix Loom-nicknamed "Doti" by the artist-was born.
