Algorithmic Textiles Design: Sewing Project

In this project, you will engage with algorithmic sewing design and/or CNC sewing fabrication at quilt scale or embroidery scale.

The Engineering Part

Write code to generate a sewing or embroidery pattern.


Build a machine or device to assist wholly or partially in the sewing or embroidery process.

The Artful Part

Consider what your software or generated pattern implies about the state of the world, what it encourages or discourages, or the sensations that it provokes in a user/viewer. Remember that material, construction, and process can be leveraged to add layers of meaning.
