Although I am primarily a printer I always wanted to to do some knitted pieces too. I've been knitting most of the week and will soon upload some photo's. My designs translate well in knit As the knit machine is similar to computer graphics as in it uses squares that are penciled in on the knit machine. each square represents a single stitch. just like each square represents one pixel.
I found this website today.

I've been thinking about the geodesic dome and how I could combine the construction in a garment then I remembered Fred Butler and his mathematically constructed accessories. He was the one who designed the telephone hat for lady gaga as seen in the video "telephone" I really like the idea of having these type of shapes in my garments and accessories or i may just build a giant dome for my degree show!

As I had mentioned in my previous post I would be taking part in an exhibition that had been organised by by flatmate, MWX at project slogan called beats n forts. My friend Julie arrived on the Wednesday and we were hard at it constructing a geodesic dome fort and practicing our set. Julie was primarily the cheif dome builder as she is a furniture maker i knew she'd love the challenge. I printed some of my designs on to the dome as another way to present them. it's the first time Julie and i have made music together and something we both want to continue doing.
after nearly a full day of putting the forts together each artist got in the there fort and played their beats. The whole event was a total success and it was great to do something other than design for a garment and product and also the collaboration between sculpture and music which is essentially where my design ideas stem from.
