Algorithmic Textiles Design: Weaving Project
In this project, you will algorithmically create and fabricate a woven design. There are many ways to approach this, from simple image-to-weaving translators (using, e.g., the overshot or double cloth techniques) to fully generative approaches and interactive systems.
The Engineering Part
Write code to create a weaving pattern.
You are strongly encouraged to use our jacquard loom either directly via the Jacq3G library or by passing a file filled with 1's and 0's to its
If you wish to use your own loom, seek permission of the instructor.
The Artful Part
Consider what concept or idea you wish to convey with your generated weaving pattern (or the entire fabrication experience).
What To Turn In
- Before Class: photograph your woven artifact; write a paragraph about what you set out to do with the artifact and where you think you succeeded or failed; make a copy of the pattern you ran on the loom; and make a copy of the source code for your artifact-generating program. Upload all of these things to a sub-folder named with your andrewid of this google drive folder. NOTE: use your @andrew account to access. NOTE2: make a sub-folder, don't upload a zip file.
- During Class: Bring your artifact (or, if it's still on the loom, I'll bring it). Present and discuss it with your classmates during our critique.
