Artworks Woven on the Loom and in Looping Video #ArtTuesday

The first thing one sees when entering the exhibition Deep Time, currently on view at Radiator Arts, are ravishing, incandescent patterns that swirl and pulsate with super-saturated colors and glow like diodes or reticulate into kaleidoscopes. But on closer inspection, these colorful patterns emerge as the physical and virtual manifestations of textile design.

Throughout the gallery are weavings and printed fabrics made by hand or computer. In some cases, the matrix of woven fiber is lodged conceptually in digital videos. The artworks in Deep Time consider the logic of a grid system that’s inherent to fiber arts and technology as a unifying scheme from which to generate images. It draws connections between the dot patterns of lights on a phosphorescent screen, the circuitry of a motherboard, and the vertical and horizontal cross-stitch of a loom. This is done with an appreciation of ancient craft and cultures and new media in concert with one another. Even when employing a TC2 Jacquard Loom or 3D printer, the featured artists always have their hands in simpler, analog, biophilic, and tactile practices as well.

Most of the artists are represented by two pieces: one that is static, like a weaving or painting; and a moving image piece, like a digital video or wall projection. The gallery ripples with visual and aural patterns that are often like deviant fractals. The ambient sounds of mechanical blips, hums, and whirs mingle with patterns of foliage, footprints in the snow, typography, or spiderwebs, as machines enhance and illuminate organic forms in supernatural ways. Magic happens when IRL perceptual material is fused with cyber-technology, creating hybrid forms.

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
