Sam Meech: Knitted Animation

Sam Meech is a multimedia artist exploring the role of analogue technologies in a digital landscape, and the possible interaction between the two in production, projection and performance. Lately his work has focused on a research project titled 'Knitting Digital', in which hacked electronic knitting machines and specially developed software tools could be used to send digital images and information to be produced as a physical knitted item. Amongst his varied experimentation, Meech developed the concept of knitted animation and the creation of moving image textiles.
