Sunrise Patterns

2 weavings,  100 x 100 cm
Visual algorithm, duration infinite

The installation Sunrise Patterns is a work that draws connections between the threads of the loom and the programming of the computer, between the logics of weaving recipes and algorithms. The outset for the installation is a historical Sunrise weaving pattern from the 19th century. Nanna Debois Buhl has woven the report, the smallest component of the weaving pattern, and then mutated the pattern by changing the rhythm of her steps on the loom pedals. The installation also contains a visual algorithm. In an infinite transformation it alternately builds up and breaks down the weaving patterns in a structured but chaotic system.
