Design research to how the motion of the sea can be a direct source for an ever-changing weaving pattern.
Kadans, a textile sea archive in collaboration with Jos Klarenbeek, is a design research on how the motion of the sea can be a direct source for an ever-changing weaving pattern.
Kadans sprouts from a shared curiosity for invisible natural processes and using these as a source of information for the development of patterns and materials. It is an investigation into the potential of raw scientific data: textile production is combined with sciences including geography and mathematics, constructing a soft output of hard data generated by the motions of waves at sea.
Together with RNDR we developed a weaving software that enables us to import data about the condition of the sea that feeds the parameters set to create a weave pattern.
The work was presented as part of the exhibition Climate as Artifact by Satellietgroep.
