4 May – 12 June 2019, Pannett Art Gallery, Whitby.
An interactive exhibition by Jane Scott and Elizabeth showcases knitted installations that change colour and adapt in shape and form in response to environmental conditions.
‘Post Digital Knit’ considers how the use of technology disrupts traditional making processes, exploring how digital technologies and craft thinking can enable the responsive, the adaptive and the bespoke.
“We are excited to bring together a new collection of responsive installations exploring the potential of knitting as a smart material system. We think it has relevance to challenge issues of sustainability across architecture, interiors and fashion. The public response so far has been fantastic.” Scott and Gaston
Alongside the knitted pieces, the exhibition considers what hybrid approaches have been developed that integrate both the programming interface and a tacit understanding of material behaviour.
