In short, this project explores a completely new way to knit.
The knitting is done by hand, on a primitive circular loom; a few thousand meters of continuous black thread are knitted as straight lines across the circumference, in a pattern dictated by a specially designed algorithm. Note that there is a lot of computing involved in the process of making, but, the final artwork carries absolutely no technology.
The project challenges our perception of reality and serves as a comment to our limited understanding of our world. The first series of knitted portraits is based on El Greco’s expressive figures.
