Esoteric Programming Language For Embroidery

Craft & Design Yarncraft

Japanese artists’ Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi have created an “esoteric” programming language called Pa++ern that translates input from visitors to their exhibit or from virtual visitors through Twitter and turns them in to graphics that can be embroidered on t-shirts.

Visitors to the gallery enjoy the movement and sounds of this highly used but rarely seen machines and can choose to operate them or witness how they are controlled by virtual visitors using twitter to send their Pa++ern program; an esoteric experience in itself.

Their Pa++ern program will be on display at the Beams Gallery in Tokyo, Japan.
