    Knitting the JÖNKÖPING LETTER ARCHIVE

    The knitting of THE JÖNKÖPING LETTER ARCHIVE has finally started during two workshops at the Göteborg Röhsska Museum and the Jönköping County Museum, Sweden!

    Having realized a couple of letters already, we are looking forward to announced contributions from Schalalala groups on facebook and ravelry. Further knitting sessions will also follow in Berlin, Bremen, Los Alamos and Zürich.

  • 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…)

  • Schalalala on ReadyMade

    When Marcel Duchamp introduced the Readymade, he did not only turn the art world upside down. By using existing objects against their intended use, he also inspired many users and makers outside the explicit art context. Hacking- and DIY-culture has by now become a popular movement with its own print media, one of which calls itself: “Readymade”.
