Fibonacci Scarf Diana Eng fibonacci, scarf, knitting, patterns
This scarf is knit with the Fibonacci number pattern. Famous in the mathematics world, the Fibonacci number pattern is created by adding a number to the previous number: 0,1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34… (2 comes from adding 1 + 1, 3 comes from adding 2 + 1). This is no ordinary number sequence. The Fibonacci number patterns are found in nature in the seed placement of a sunflower, the pattern on a pine cone, and the uncurling of a fern. The number pattern creates a golden spiral and is used in financial predictions and for computer algorithms. This scarf is knit with the Fibonacci numbers in order: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, and 21. As the scarf is knit, the new number of stitches is added to the previous number of stitches to get the next number of stitches. Thus the knitting method is also influence by the Fibonacci formula.

News Knitter Ebru Kurbak & Mahir Mustafa Yavuz data visualization, knitting, garments, computer, design
News Knitter is a data visualization project which focuses on knitted garments as an alternative medium to visualize large scale data. The production of knitted garments is a highly complex process which involves computer support at various steps starting with the designs of both the fabric and the shape of garments until they are ready-to-wear. In recent years, technical innovations in machine knitting have especially focused on the patterning facilities. The patterns are designed by individuals generally depending on the current trends of fashion and the intended target markets and multiplied through mass production. News Knitter translates this individual design process into a world-wide collaboration by utilizing live data streams as a base for pattern generation. Due to the dynamic nature of live data streams, the system generates patterns with unpredictable visuality.

XS labs Joanna Berzowska (XS labs) lab, innovation, electronic textiles, reactive garments, interactions, design research studio, complex textile-based surfaces, transitive properties
Joanna Berzowska's XS Labs is a design research studio with a focus on innovation in the fields of electronic textiles and reactive garments: "second skins" that can enable computationally-mediated interactions with the environment and the individual. We are equally inspired by the technical and cultural history of how textiles have been made for generations (weaving, stitching, embroidery, knitting, beading, quilting) and by new and emerging materials with different electro-mechanical properties. This enables us to construct complex textile-based surfaces, substrates, and structures with "transitive" properties.
