Glitch Embroidery

Digital fabrication

Nukeme [Japan]


Using rewritten binary-code embroidery data (.pes) from a computerized sewing machine, the work causes glitches in the needle’s movement. The English word “glitch” refers to “damage to data or machinery, or the condition of data that is damaged but still useable.” This work was created by intentionally damaging data, then outputting the results of the damage.
