From Elijah Meeks’ hackathon at the Texas Digital Humanities Conference I learned about Fragmented Memory by Phillip Stearns. This is a project that takes binary data and then turns it into weaving instructions using Processing. Here is one of the large tapestries woven (and available for sale.)
If you can’t afford a $15,000 tapestry, there are also cheaper blankets here.
I’ve just put them on my Christmas list (which I can never find in time.)
