I’m very pleased to be included a new book from O’REILLY called “HA3KE3LN + STR1CK3N FUER GEEKS” (Crochet and Knitting for Geeks”) by art, media and cultural studies scholar Verena Kuni. It’s only available in German for now, but there may be an English version in the future.

I’ll be at The Museum of Arts and Design’s Teen Night this Friday from 5-9 doing some demos and presentations with the the knitting machine for a program called Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital
I’ll be giving an 8-minute update on what I’ve been up to in the studio, along with 5 other artists, @ the Bushwick Art Crit Group this Wednesday if you’d like to come along for a beer and a gander.
If you’re in Los Angeles this weekend and you’d like to see Joseph Merrick in life-sized knitted body pillow form, then swing by the opening of Sacred Memories: Cross-Cultural Celebrations of Day of the Dead on Friday from 6-9 at The Pico House Gallery.
I’m participating in a print exchange called Fluctuations opening this Friday, October 11th, at Recession art in Brooklyn. My contribution is a knitted image of a screenshot I took of a royalty free stock image of a folded piece of paper featuring a digital watermark.
I did a little performance in my studio over the weekend, in which I selected a recent Jogging post, then converted it into a digital knitting pattern, knitted it, and then tried to disguise myself as it, all the while submitting my progress to Jogging, with mixed results.
