These textiles are a collection of woven and knit wall hangings and blankets whose patterns are generated using images taken with short circuited cameras.
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 now becomes a platform for fashioning corrupted memory, the cold logic of digital systems into soft, warm blankets.
This project is related to the Year of the Glitch project and DCP Series of images produced with modified, obsolete Kodak digital cameras. Images from these and other experiments are used as pattern sources for creating these blankets.
