The Live Loom

McLean, Alex

This paper introduces the Live Loom, a warp-weighted hand-loom augmented with computer control, using a visual live coding environment. The traditional weaving technique of colour-and-weave interference patterns are explored, revealing the digital, computational nature of weaving that predates the invention of discrete mathematics as it is commonly understood. Early results of live coding such patterns, in the process of learning how to weave, is shared.
