Sam Meech's Knitted Binary Scarves

Sam Meech's Knitted Binary Scarves

“Machines take me by surprise with great frequency.” Alan Turning

These are so cool! The design of each binary scarf encrypts a quotation as a binary code, whereby each 8 stitches represents a letter from the alphabet, using a value ascribed to a character from the ASCII text alphabet.

Sam says, “I developed the idea and process for a design commission by the ODI for their co-founder Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 2014 (I kid you not – again I’ll post more about this later). Since then I’ve been creating designs based on quotes that play on the notion of encryption, patterns, binary, or the engagement with machines and technology as part of a creative process.”
