Interwoven is a long-form generative art series created by Emily Xie as Vol. 4 of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Remembrance of Things Future blockchain initiative. The project is a collaboration with Cactoid Labs in support of LACMA’s Art and Technology Lab.
Made entirely with code, Interwoven draws inspiration from the 1986 Bullseye Quilt by Martha Lou Jones in LACMA’s collection, meditating on the quilt’s underlying tension between the computational and handmade through a distinctive patchwork style. The algorithm uses randomness to give rise to creature-like forms in order to embody the narrative elements so integral to the tradition of quilt-making.
