Description

Infinite Weft is a handwoven section of an infinitely repeatable pattern. Using custom-written software (blprnt.com/infiniteweft) the artists generated a unique set of weaving draw-downs which were then used to weave the piece on a sixteen-harness floor loom. While much has been said about the relationship of computer to the Jacquard loom, this piece shows the tremendous breadth of possibility for exploration—even with more traditional weaving techniques.
