Thread of Thought

The installation ‘Thread of Thought’ expresses art and academic research integration. The research focus is digital design and fabrication of crochet, which enables the creation of complex 3D structures directly from yarn. Crochet is a textile handcraft with no industrial solution so far. Nix’s research involves the transformation of crochet from handcraft to robotic fabrication. The research is taking place at the MTRL lab at the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology. The pavilion is made of an inflatable construction of crochet textiles and fitness balls. The crochet pattern determines the installation structure, demonstrating the potential for temporary buildings or shelters. According to the vision Nix presents, this type of structure will be created robotically in the future. Solo exhibition Periscope gallery Tel Aviv 2022.
