Trame Virtuali

Sofia Angelopoulou, Maria Fernanda Duarte


This project is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional carpet as a medium to narrate stories. From early times, carpets depicted symbols representing legends and cultures. We embrace the character of the carpet as a cultural record and update it with current content from our globally interconnected society.

Hourly popular topics from Twitter hashtags are automatically collected and processed through computing codes into weaving patterns. For the transformation of the stories into the texture, a language was created where each letter of the alphabet corresponds to a textile composition.
