Physical Construction of Tapestry

Since we launched the project on Kickstarter, we've been working non-stop. It is so exciting to see our dream come to life. It's an ideal collaboration, matching skills and talents.

It is so labor-intensive. All aspects are handmade, it really is digital, in the sense of digits, the hand, fingers and numbers - transferring the tradition of handweaving to the networked present.

We received a notice from Atlantic:

Artists Hand Weave Tapestry from Fiber Optic Thread

We thought you'd like to see some of the stages of the work.

Nora and Hannah Levy, who worked with us, sorting plugs.

Cutting plexiglass panels at Eyebeam.

Nora assembling the plexiglass panels.

Marshall gluing the panel boxes together.

That's a beautiful joint.

More to come, thanks for your support and interest.
