INTERSECTIONS X,Y,Z

 

ā€œIntersections X,Y,Zā€ is a project that uses various technologies to encode or decode words. As a starting point,artificial intelligence software was used to generate new texts. For the dataset, texts from various authors are used, that pave the way for perspectives from BIPoC in theater, art, design and literature. The words in the texts have then been translated into knots used as haptic codes. Through a series of digitally rendered weavings and 3D printed physical manifestations, a network of concepts and meanings is created and stored in an object or surface that can be interpreted in different ways depending on the context, culture, language, time or geography. ā€œIntersections X,Y,Zā€ emerged from a previous project "Codes in Knots", which in turn is inspired by the Andean Khipus that are knotted string devices used by the Incas to store and transmit information.
