Sue Pedley & Gail Kenning

Gail Kenning and Sue Pedley share an interest in pattern and processes. Kenning works with form, structure, code and data to create patterns that seemingly dissolve into random or develop into chaos. These emerging patterns are exhibited in the form of programmed animations and physical lace, woven or knitted artefacts. Pedley draws out connections between people, places and objects. These patterns are exhibited as animations and collages. The recent body of work involves interweaving
paper and textiles found in an abandoned house in Teshima, a small fishing village in Japan.

Hawaii is the most geographically isolated island chain in the world and a crossroad of cultures between the East and West.

Textiles Conference of America to see Emergent Digital Patterns:

Sydney artist, Gail Kenning, presented examples of her experimental digital patterns to the Textiles Conference of America conference in Hawaii September 25 2008. As part of her PhD research, Kenning took traditional patterns from crochet lace and algorithmically explored how the patterns could be evolved to form new shapes. The result is a kaleidoscope of different coloured patterns, some of which dissolve into chaos, while others mutate into interesting new shapes. (See Digital Art for sample of Gail Kenning's work.)
