knitting your voice
how great is that !
Magdalena Kohler and Hanna Wiesener created this installation/machine called gelsomnia that records your voice and knitts the waveforms of the sound on a knitting-machine.
its similar to that project:
Mahir M. Yavuz and Ebru Kurbak, students at Kunstuniversität Linz, have created Newsknitter, a process through which headlines are transformed into beautiful patterns on unique sweaters.
"News Knitter converts information gathered from the daily political news into clothing. Live news feed from the Internet that is broadcasted within 24 hours or a particular period is analyzed, filtered and converted into a unique visual pattern for a knitted sweater. The system consists of two different types of software: whereas one receives the content from live feeds the other converts it into visual patterns, and a fully computerized flat knitting machine produces the final output. Each product, sweater of News Knitter is an evidence/result of a specific day or period." more info here
