Pixels for Carpets

by guy keulemans on April 20, 2006

A little while ago I was reading about modern carpet production using automated Jacquard Looms. I decided to make my own patterns in minimal patterns suitable for the process. Linked is short movie of 18 of these patterns. I’m not sure if the technique I used to produce these designs has a proper name, but its similar to ‘granular synthesis’ as used in audio synthesizers; starting with a aperiodic tiling pattern as a base image , I then zoomed into small pixel sections, expanded and repeated them, and spun off new patterns as they emerged.

I remember when you came up with these designs. There’s something really nice about the simplicity of each of these designs here.
