Túnica 2

Video Photo Info
Túnica 2 is a generative digital fabric that weaves the name of deceased contemporary artists. The artwork is inspired by Pre-Columbian funeral gauzes, and is a tribute to the creative legacy of contemporary artists.

Túnica 2 belongs to the Pixelweaver series that draw on textiles as a metaphor for the social fabric created, and sometimes destroyed, by the data. These artworks pay tribute to the close relationship between information technology and textiles, beginning with the Jacquard's loom in the early nineteenth century, considered by many historians to be the first computer. For this new series, Studio Daniel Canogar has developed a virtual loom based on craft techniques. This algorithmic tool enables the creation of a wide range of patterns from different sources or "spools".
