Baskets

Baskets is a collaboration with the Native-American Basket weaver Terrol Dew Johnson. The project explores algorithmic design as a continuum stretching from the latest computer-aided techniques in design and architecture back through the creative traditions of the world’s oldest material practice: weaving and basketry.

Rooted in this shared foundation of pattern-making, the collaboration produced a collection of experimental baskets and woven constructions that engaged the traditional art of basket weaving while extending the tradition through advanced computation and fabrication methods, resulting in a range of pieces made in a variety of materials including grass, wood, glass, plastic and metal.

The project was displayed at Artists Space in New York as part of their Architecture and Design project series in 2006, curated by Christian Rattemeyer.
