I just found out about Rachel Beth Egenhoefer http://www.rachelbeth.net/ her projects are very intriguing.
I've also been weaving recently and created a piece entitled "Gender Resolution" http://vimeo.com/9686759. In addition I distributed and sewed up checks into a matrix and have been discovering huge aesthetic resonance between the act of sewing and my relationship with digital imagery. The most recent works are called "Checkered Past" and "Implied Tree". Both can be viewed here http://peteippel.com
I learned how to knit and purl today, further exploring the similarities between pixels, vectors, weaving, sewing, and knitting. I am constantly updating my blog with video, photo, and research as I make my discoveries. Be sure to view the Material Property series of videos. http://hypermodern.net
