Alisa Dworsky The exhibit as opened, the installation is complete! here is an image of “Drawn Out”, 10′ X 13′ X 7′, Ribbon, Lead, Carabiners and Steel, 2013. Three lead weights create a tensile force on the horizontally woven ribbons; this force helps to shape the main volume of the piece. The counterweights are connected to the main form by satin ribbons strung through a series of carabiners, mounted on the ceiling and the wall, that redirect the tensile force created by the lead weights. Jeff Bergman, Associate Director at Pace Prints curated the show “Flat/Not Flat” for which I created this work.

Please enjoy my review of the fiber and textile trends in fashion during 2013 as featured on The WILD Magazine. "It was a year where the craftsmanship of couture seemed more approachable (tactile), the fringes of independent design reached the center, silhouettes and materials got a bit crazier, and knitwear hype continued to rival technological breakthroughs. Picking the ‘best of the best’ is really not even a useful exercise when so much is to be gained from creating a unique dialogue between our own body and the environment via options that might now be helping us to realize what a more integrated psyche and terrain might ultimately entail." abigail doan
Why I hacked a knitting machine | Fashion Where the project all started: Andrew Salomone wearing a balaclava with an image of his own face knitted on to it. Photograph: Becky Stern Some people use hacking to attempt bold endeavours like undermining the governments of tyrannical superpowers, while others use it for more trivial purposes, such as making all of the female characters nude in Skyrim. Brooklyn-based artist Andrew Salomone's innovative use of hacking to make custom knitwear will neither change the world nor impress gaming nerds, but it is going to make a lot of crafters very, very excited. After getting the help of some tech-savvy friends who fiddled with a USB cable to connect a Brother KH-930e electronic knitting machine to a computer, he is now able to make the machine knit photorealistic copies of digital images, sort of in the same way a desktop printer reproduces an image.
