knitting dreams (2010)

When we read a text, an image appears in our mind. Only by constructing this image, which could be understood as an abstract, higher-dimensional reality, can we make meaning emerge by bringing together single pieces of pulverized letters and words, senseless on their own. The work knitting dreams attempts to visualize this metaphor, which is inspired by Kazimir Malevic’s thoughts on poetry and Italo Calvino’s ideas of storytelling. Knitting dreams is a video animation that consists of two parts.

The work was realized using Pure Data and GEM, special thanks to Ruth Anderwald, Leonhard Grond, Olivia Toffolini, Mathieu Bouchard and IOhannes Zmölnig.
