Hello Jönköping!

Schalalala takes part in the exhibition “CRAFTWERK 2.0 – New Household Tactics for the Popular Crafts” at the Jönköping County Museum, Sweden. On this occasion, Schalalala introduces THE JÖNKÖPING LETTER ARCHIVE, a continuation of fan scarf remix, inspired by movable type printing:

THE JÖNKÖPING LETTER ARCHIVE is a collection of single letter knitting patterns extracted from existing fan scarfs, which were found on the internet. Having been left in their digital fuzziness, the patterns elicit a personal adaptation depending on each knitter’s technique and wool remnants.

For the duration of the exhibition, the archive will be used for an internet experiment: Jönköping residents and knitters worldwide are invited to each re-knit one letter from the archive and to send it to the museum. All letters will be connected in order of arrival, thus generating a non-predictable text(ile) outcome. (more…)
