These blankets are layered with irony: a digital photographic image, made with an intentionally broken (rewired) camera, is mechanically woven or knit into a photoblanket. In this project, a keepsake for cherishing one’s memories becomes a platform for fashioning corrupted memory, the cold logic of digital systems into soft, warm blankets.
Designed by Phillip Stearns. DCP Series designs are sourced from intentionally short circuited digital cameras. DA series designs are created using the process of down-sampling and color-quantization applied to gradients.
