Between 7 – 10 May I will be working in residency (along with Alex McLean, Dave Griffiths and Ellen Harlizius-Klück) in the Museum für Abgüsse Klassischer Bildwerke in Munich, as part of the project Weaving Codes/Coding Weaves.
Our residency is in conjunction with Ellen’s ‘Textile Matrix’ exhibition at the Museum, a crossbreeding of logical science, religion, crafts and visual arts. The word ‘matrix’ originates from the Latin word for mother or uterus, but today is predominantly used in mathematics, science and technology. Ellen's work, as much of the weaving codes project, provides new perspectives on connections between modern digital technology and ancient weaving.
On the 9th May there will be talks and slub will be performing a special livecoding gig. On the 10th the research team will present the work undertaken doing during the residency, inviting people to participate in a citizen science event, exploring mathematics, weaving, music and code – including the brand new pattern matrix tangible weavecoding device.
