Knit One, Perl 2

I always knew it would be cool again one day. Knitting is making a comeback, and quilting too: the Dutch Electronic Arts Festival includes sessions called 'Knitted Europe,' 'Data Knitting,' and 'Media Knitting.' The latter is a three-day hands-on workshop, so bring your digital wool and needles to Rotterdam. From 26 - 28 February, thirty participants and tutors Amy Franceschini and Guy Van Belle will knit together video, audio, streaming media and 3D modelling to 'discover and patch each other's domains.' The end result will be presented at a concert open to the festival audience. Further information is available at, and the full DEAF 2003 web site will be launched this Saturday, 25 January. - Helen Varley Jamieson
