Ladders Ladders (2014) - Sarah Courtney
This is the first in a series of works based on text I recieved when learning how to use a knitting machine. Each page of text is the instruction on how to create a certain effect, in this case how to make ladders in the fabric.
For each piece I have used the technique instructed in the text, to write the text itself into the fabric that I am knitting. The work becomes a document of it’s own making; of the base code (aka instructions) which tells the processor (aka me, the Maker) what to produce
I’m still waiting on the better photos of this to get sent to me so I’ll update as soon as I can…
