Moments

The Moments collection of tapestries are translated adaptations of the digital series of similar title - Moments Re-imagined. Digital weaving enhances an inherent graphic sensibility found in the originating imagery that further shifts the outcome to greater abstraction while at the same time introducing a tactile dynamic to the work. More complex than digital printing, digital looming involves the ‘translation’ not ‘reproduction’ of an image, a process that is inherently dependent upon programming and the combination of available yarns and colorations best suited in replicating the original palette.
 
Creating and producing this body of work entirely within the digital realm reflects an interesting historical cross-reference to the Jacquard loom of 1801, which revolutionized weaving by employing a punched card system – perhaps the very earliest beginnings of the computer. In turn, this form of mechanization was adapted by Charles Babbage (believed to be the father of the computer) to the development of a calculating machine... which was a forerunner of today’s’ computer.
