Setting forth to study various mathematical relationships, algorithms, and concepts through the production of cloth, Woven Relations investigates the interconnected histories of jacquard weaving and computer science. Dylan Fish and Daniel Johnstone explore various historically significant equations and encryption algorithms through two-dimensional and three-dimensional woven forms, visually elucidating the mysteries behind the function and implementation of modern mathematics and computation.
