Fabricated code explores a creative collaboration between a human and a computer. Where both collaborators are integral and independent participants in the process.
The computer generates a binary code that appear on a punch card, which is then used to fabricate a knitted structure on an analog knitting machine. The formula is known and determined by the computer, but the fabrication requires the human hand, and he chooses the raw materials and the colors that appear on each knitted row.
The computer is often used to minimize human errors but, in this case, since the code its generating is without context, the computer is causing abruptions in the knitted structure.
loops are stretched between knitted rows, creating uneven 3D texture that highlights the computer's involvement in the creation process.
