Hi-tech tools such as Al, VR and robotics, are sleek fast and enticing, but they can be a distraction from creative thinking. Engagement with the natural world and real, “hi- touch" things like hand-crafted materials, humanise our experience, help us slow down and restore our imagination and wonder.
Visual Code is a collection of ten different patterns inspired by the symbiotic relationship of hi-tech and hi- touch, marrying glitch graphics and technicolour circuitry with simple textures that recall plain woven fabrics and rugs.
Stitch Count, Stitchery and Plain Stitch set the groundwork for the collection based on simple textiles in shades of grey. In contrast, Hard Drive and Static Lines scramble colours, mimicking a monitor “glitch". Bright, bold Circuit Board is like wiring, yet vaguely like an ancient tribal motif. To strike the balance, four black and white textures recall handwoven rugs from another time and place.
