I designed these textiles and printed them thanks to a student grant from Spoonflower.
To create this series of textiles (meant for garments and other constructions) I utilized an entirely different technique. My goal was to reveal an interconnectivity of image, as facilitated by Google Images.
Beginning with images of neural networks I used Google’s image search to create an archive of what the technology had deemed to be visually similar images. The process and the connections that the image search made were quite interesting. Following a long process of clicking and image searching, I was able to create an archive that included images including brain synapses, algae blooms, carpet foam, and cut vegetables.
My processes in textile creation gave me the opportunity to explore networks, platforms, connectivity, and systems in a more material centered way. It also gave me the opportunity to explore image and technology in a way that I found quite interesting.
