Knotting Time at Villa Merkel, Esslingen


Our new installation Knotting Time is coming together for the group show Networking the Unseen at Villa Merkel curated by Gretta Louw. If you are near Esslingen, do pop by on the 17th December between 11:00–15:00 where we will be in the gallery showing how to knot our data carpets. Related to the carpets we are also displaying pen plots of the time spent inside and outside over the years 2016 and 2015 and a video about the process of making the carpets with others.

The exhibition officially opens on 20th December and runs till 4th March.

Talking jacquard looms at Janus and Arachne

Thanks to Mona Kuschel, we met Eva Koziol last week of Janus and Arachne here in Berlin to find out about jacquard loom weaving, leaving with a lot more knowledge about the process and some wonderful samples of her work like this portrait above. We are planning to encode our GPS data in fabric for a forthcoming exhibition curated by Gretta Louw at the Villa Merkel in Esslingen later this year. Thanks also to our current intern from Stanford University, Robin Sydney Willscheidt for accompanying us and taking some pictures. We call the visualisation we are working on a ‘birch forest visualisation’ and you can find out more about it here.
