Subversive Knitting

http://turbulence.org/Works/microRevolt/

I start my knitting blog with the most fantastic finding from all times. This is the website from an artist who was a web designer fond of knitting. On an enlightened day she realized both things she did had something in commom: from pixels to knitting drawing, she then created this wonder: KnitPro.

What is it? An online tool that converts an image into a knitting pattern (!!!). Amazing!

About the artist:

She is the founder of microRevolt, which is responsible for a series of art projects that combine knitting, machines, and digital social networks to educate about the sweatshop crisis. microRevolt projects have exhibited as part of the 2005 Performa Biennial in NYC, Futuresonic in Manchester UK, the Blind Spot Exhibit in Dundee Scotland, FILE in São Paulo Brazil and received a “Digital Communities” award at Ars Electronica.
