This week course is really interesting because I get to learn about weaving in both historical crafting way and modern digital platform.
Weaving in Grasshopper & Rhino
Apart from overwhelming by the logistic thinking behind Grasshopper, what gave me a strong impression of the building process is that we are building pattern within patterns. Just like the physical thread, everything is interweaving with each other, each adjustment can change the final output.
Weaving with Floor Loom
I am really intrigued by the system of how they communicate weaving pattern, it reminds me of encrypting and decoding. Transforming binary into patterns. While doing the coding exercise, the movie Wanted somehow came into my mind. The movie was ok, but I always remember how they read the mission code from the “Loom of Fate”.
Technology exists within historical context.
