COOL HUNTING

Riffing on the juxtaposition of the traditional with the digital, the inspiration for the upcoming panel discussion in NYC, Craft Hackers, is the kind of work that melds needlework and computing. Members of the panel include a cadre of accomplished artists engaging the tech-meets-handmade aesthetic.

Cat Mazza has captured moving images into stills knit from yarn; Christy Matson uses an early loom (one of the earliest forms of computer) to recreate digital landscapes found in video games while Ben Fino-Radin translates HTML into needlepoint and plastic sculpture. That's just a sampling of the minds being brought together in collaboration with Rhizome.
