Exercises in pattern-making using traditional weaving patterns, executed in paper to achieve a variety of textures and surfaces. More recently, I have been testing the effect of weaving together two handwritten texts to form a new text that appears at first glance to be legible, but is in fact nonsense; a kind of ‘physical glitch’. The project is in part an attempt to bridge the gap between traditional hand-crafts and graphic design, and to incorporate more hand-making into the everyday practice of design, while working within the constraints of the medium.
