Moments

The Moments collection of tapestries are translated adaptations of the digital series of similar title. Digital weaving enhances an inherent graphic sensibility found in the originating imagery that further shifts the outcome to greater abstraction, while at the same introducing a tactile dynamic to the work. Digital weaving is more complex than digital printing. It involves the ‘translation’ not ‘reproduction’ of an image. The process is inherently dependent upon programming and the combination of available yarns and colorations best suited in replicating the original palette.
 
Within the context of this work – as having been digitally created and produced – there is a fascinating 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. Charles Babbage (believed to be the father of the computer) adapted this form of mechanization to the development of a calculating machine... a forerunner to today’s’ computer.
