woman resting

code installation pattern

The representation of a female figure as it was found on a traditional textile, is recorded to the pattern of cross stitch. While motifs were traditionally transmitted visually from generation to generation, in the early 20th century women began recording patterns in a binary code on the  grid, so that they could exchange them with each other. The practice of this recording has been a code of communication and dialogue between women craftsmen for decades.
The woman figure is isolated and lying down on a human scale, as a signal to be communicated.
