Tanglebots

In the weaving codes - coding weaves project, Alex McLean, Ellen Harlizius-Klück and I reconnect modern digital tools and the ancient and fundamentally digital art of weaving. We ask for the theoretical points where weaving and computer programming connect and develop codes and code machines to pursue these questions. To control the entanglement of threads is not that demanding for human beings and hands, however it is a challenge for machines and robots. For the finale to the weaving_codes - coding weaves project we are trying a new approach to technology education inspired by this, teaching families about code, robotics and thread by building “tanglebots”.
