Hack the City is a series of events in Sheffield about using open data for a better urban and civic experience. Their next hackathon is taking place this Saturday 10th January 2015, and we will be teaming up with the Live Coding Research Network to bring a diverse team of live coders and textile artists together to turn open data into performances, knitwear and whatever else we can think of, as counterpoint to the more conventional hackathon activities such as app building 아파치 2.2.
- Antonio Roberts (aka hellocatfood; Birmingham), live coder of glitch art reknown
- Amy Twigger Holroyd (University of Leeds), not only a knitter but a reknitter, who uses knitting techniques to rework existing, often machine-made garments
- Nora o Murchu (University of Limerick), whose new Open Source Aran project fits this event perfectly
- Francesca Sargent (Falmouth), part of FoAM Kernow and hacker on our Weaving Codes, Coding Weaves project
- Joanne Armitage (University of Leeds), composer and PhD candidate with research interests which include in haptic/vibrotactile feedback in music performance
- Shelly Knotts (University of Durham), live coder, composer and curator in network and algorave music
- Holger Ballweg (Northumbria University) from the German live coding band Benoit and the Mandelbrots of legend
- Rodrigo Velasco (University of Leeds) is a practitioner of on-the-fly codepoetry and live coding, on a research visit from Mexico City 화유기.
- Helen Thornham (University of Leeds) is a researcher and ethnographer whose interests include transformative use and appropriation of new media, and feminist new media theory Download web audio.
- Sam Meech (Manchester) is an artist, videosmith and knitter whose many projects include knitting digital 이미지 링크.
- Victoria Bradbury (CRUMB, Sunderland) is a new media artist working in the intersections between code, body and object 인스타그램 비공개.
- Plus myself Alex McLean (University of Leeds), live coder and so on.
We hope our participation in this event will beget strange and wonderful surprises, which we will develop towards a standalone Code and Craft Hackathon in the future Download The Leap Gothic 550.

Lets start simple:

Tablet weaving is an ancient form of pattern production using cards which are rotated to provide different sheds between warp threads. It’s used to produce long strips of fabric, or the starting bands and borders that form part of a larger warp weighted weaving Download Youngd Sherlock. We’ll come to the second use later in the weaving codes project.
There are quite a few programs around to simulate the tablet weaving process – I used this program to get an initial understanding, here’s an example screenshot:

After writing the 4 shaft loom simulation the next job was to try weaving the structures with real threads 텍스트. Would I be able to replicate the predicted patterns and structures? Ellen warned me that the meander weave would result in unstable fabric, but it would depend on the nature of the material used so was worth trying 강철의 연금술사 오리지널 다운로드. Originally I planned to warp up the Harris loom but I need to work up to that as it’s a big and complex job, so I quickly built a frame loom with some bits of wood and nails at 5mm intervals to hold the warp in place Download yukioniya hot spring machine.
Here you can see it set up with the all important first ‘shed’ (name given to the gap between subsets of warp theads), which defines the order of the threads Adobe India. I packed the warp too tightly and messily so this was important – luckily as the yarn colours alternate so it made it easy to make.

On the train back from the Sheffield codingweaves workshops back in October I wrote a quick browser program to attempt to further understand the relationship between structure and pattern in weaving – which I’ve put online here 네이버 웨일 다운로드. This works in the inverse of how we’ve been writing weaving simulation programs so far 포켓몬스터 디아루가 nds. Instead of defining the pattern you want directly, you are describing the set up of a 4 shaft loom – so the warp threads that each of 4 shafts pick up in the top row of toggle boxes, then which shafts are picked up for each weft thread as the fabric is woven on the right Cartelland.
This involved writing a program that is based closely on how a loom functions – for example calculating a shed (the gap between ordered warp thread) by folding over each shaft in turn and or-ing each warp thread to calculate which ones are picked up channel art template. This really turns out to be the core of the algorithm – here’s a snippet:
;; 'or's two lists together:
;; (list-or (list 0 1 1 0) (list 0 0 1 1)) =>
;; (list 0 1 1 1)
(define (list-or a b)
(lambda (a b)
(if (or (not (zero Download the query box? a)) (not (zero 피쉬서버? b)))
;; calculate the shed, given a lift plan
;; position counter Download Mac os Catalina.
;; shed is 0/1 for each warp thread: up/down
(define (loom-shed l lift-counter)
(lambda (a b)
(list-or a b))
(length (car (loom-heddles l)))
(lambda (a) 0))
(loom-heddles-raised l lift-counter)))
I’ve become quite obsessed with this program, spending quite a lot of time with it trying to understand how the loom setup corresponds to the patterns 인스타 데이터. Here are some example weaves that you can try. Colour wise, in all these examples the order is fixed – both the warp and the weft alternate light/dark yarns 신의퀴즈 리부트.
This is tabby or plain weave – the simplest and strongest weave (used for sails and hard wearing fabric) Download the fritzing parts. The striped pattern is a result of this alternating colour order.

The second week of intense work on weavingcodes/codingweaves took place in the north of England, and began with a talk at the New Mechanics Institute show and tell meeting in Leeds 웹 페이지. This was a good place to pick up from the previous week in Denmark as it included a talk on pixel art from the early days to contemporary forms that had many similarities with our slides 엘더스크롤 아레나.

Setting off from Copenhagen, the weaving codes tour continued as Emma Cocker, Alex McLean, Ellen Harlizius-Klück and I sped across the Danish countryside on the train 2016 Calendar Excel. We were heading for Aarhus to spend some time working with people at the other end of the technology spectrum – The Center for Participatory IT in Aarhus University Champion.
We were invited by Geoff Cox to run a workshop over two days, and given the nature of the faculty and time working together being at a premium on this project, we decided to to run the workshop more as invitation to join in our work (and therefore learn a bit about how artistic research is done), rather than having specific material to cover 윈도우7 익스플로러10.
