I am lucky to have friends who put together an infinity mirror electronics kit just for me (featuring a flexible LED filament in the center) 😍 it’s like magic!

Yipee I figured out how to use the bit-field pattern formulas from @bitartbot. I borrowed code from Anonymous Scientist who explains how it works (metafilter.com/192164/Patterns) and shows how to animate them (pastebin.com/5uj34j3s).

Super fun and pretty!

Try it here by replace the test function with the pattern formulas: jsitor.com/v79NPvk9iV

The nice thing about coming quite far along in making a blanket is that you can use it as a blanket while you continue adding rows to it :D

Another round of for the new folks pouring in!

I'm an interaction and and I mostly and with things. I am soon entering the industry to work as a researcher.

I enjoy working with everyday materials like , , , , and . I also like to combine with contemporary tech like to explore the interactions between them from and perspectives. My latest journal article on 'making creative leaps with AI': tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10

I occasionally write tutorials and conduct workshops on these topics. I'm an advocate of practices. Here's a talk titled 'Knotty Hardware' I gave earlier this year at OHS 2022: youtube.com/watch?v=KXUlqIrALR

If any of this resonates, give me a follow. I'm also open to small collaborations and make seshes!

Take a peek of some of my projects below/find them on my website: anuradhareddy.com/

I chose neon green DMC embroidery floss (E990), inspired by the digital green rain Matrix effect. With squinted eyes/from afar, you shouldn't be able to tell the difference!

Before stitching, I prepared the crop top by screenprinting a dotted grid. Then I wrote an 88-character micro-fiction between One and Zero based on the grid. Finally, I followed a Hitomezashi binary pattern (bottom left to top right):
0 consonants
1 for vowels

I upcycled my white crop top with a Hitomezashi binary stitch pattern that tells a romantic story, and it goes like this:

On a dotted canvas, One tiptoed to Zero and said “I want to make patterns with you.” Zero gasped and cried out, “You complete me!”

I've been taking lessons on Islamic geometry from @samira_mian@twitter.com and drew the Ferozkoh Jaali pattern in p5.js using code + rhythm while following her excellent instructions. Featuring Rozi by Eva B (soundtrack from ). Sound on, please 🔊 Enjoy!
