The pattern of the fabric is that of the audio waveform recorded while weaving the fabric. The pattern has its origin in the sound of the loom. I first recorded a rattling sound of the loom’s starting sequence. I turned that soundwave into a pixelated pattern and wove it while recording myself again. From that sound I created the next pattern, wove it again, recorded myself again and so on. The work recalls Robert Morris’ “Box with the sound of its own making” but then it also relates to concepts of repetition, difference and variation.
