Knitting the News Into a Sweater!

July 9th, 2008

News Knitter takes information that is collected from daily political news in any 24 hour period and turns it into a sweater by sending the data to a computerized knitting machine. The project uses knitting to help visualize large amounts of information.

    That’s really cool.

    I don’t quite know what to say! Wish I could see the sweater better and wish I knew more about why this is happening!

    I don’t understand how the ones without words are actually communicating or helping to visuallize any information, but I love the idea of the sweater news project. The sweaters are very graphic and cool.

    Interesting choice using the daily news. Even more unique would be knitting the Star & Planetary positions / Astrological birth chart of the wearer into a sweater? Any Takers?

    This is very cool. But I wish I could have read about this 6 months ago, when they were in Boston.
